Winter Canal is set in Venice, in January, when it is very cold, especially out on the decks of the Vaporetto boats. In the afterglow of the sunset it is hard to make out the details of the houses. But the sky was an inspiration. Winter Canal was awarded honorary mention in the June 2013 Leading Artists Online Gallery’s Cityscape competition. The painting is acrylic on stretched linen, 22 by 30 inches; 24 by 32 inches framed. The shadow frame cuts nothing off a picture, which appears to float. The painting is signed and dated on the back. The artist sends a letter of provenance when a piece sells, which increases the value of the work. All her work is copyrighted by Eleanor Gilpatrick. Copyright is not transferable through the purchase of artwork.
Hello!! I am a contemporary realist painter of landscapes, people, still lifes, and abstracts that reflect my love of beauty and the way I see the world. Some paintings deal with peace issues; some are about Climate Change; many have edgy compositions. I never sell prints of my artwork. So, see my descriptions to find out about each piece. Please write to me if you have any questions.
