Another Kind of Auction

8 x 10"
oil on masonite

I did want to show you this new piece that I am donating to a fund-raising event, the High Museum's Wine and Art Auction coming up next month. The sculpture featured in this painting is the ten-foot-long "Tiber", on loan from the Louvre and currently on display at the High Museum, here in Atlanta. At night, it is quite breathtaking to view, with the strong lighting defining the ripples and shadows and details.

Karin,

This is an amazing painting. You've really captured how awesome sculpture can be when lit properly. Light almost shines from the piece, instead of being reflected off of it.

Breathtaking,- and I am not talking about the sculpture, as I have never seen it.

I was fortunate enough to see this painting at the Gala evening preview. Beautiful. It is deeper and more rich in person. I hope it went to a good home.
