Click image to return to North Carolina Art page. Mixed media. Dimensions: 32 1/4 x 29 1/4. Purchased from Joan Hodgell Gallery, Sarasota, Fla, 1987. To best view this enlarged image, the viewing monitor brightness should be about 50% of maximum level. The overall photo image is approximately correct for colors. The actual piece is "perfect" in terms of color balance, ie. how one color looks in relation to another. We made some "software" corrections to the photo with only "approximate" success; the photo is "close" but not as good as the actual piece.
This is a really nice piece. The choice of colors, their tone and pleasing contrast, really makes one admire the talent of the artist. The mat surrounding the painting is a crisp white with a delicate texture to the surface. The frame is a high gloss white enamel with perfect corners and no flaws in the surface appearance of the frame. The combination of "perfection" of the frame and mat" add a lot of "class" to the entire piece; the frame and art are really "part of the art". (writer's opinion)
One really needs to see this painting to understand the above comments about the colors, mat and frame "coming" together to make the "perfect" piece! (owner)
