Cathedral Reflection

16 x 20 acrylic on canvas $325
This painting was done during the Marcia Burtt workshop at the Sedona Arts Center. Working in direct sunlight with acrylics was challenging. Marcia reinforced a lot of my own insticts about direct painting. For me what was reinforced was that the painting starts essentially as abstract relationships of shapes of color next to one another. It becomes an image through that process of observation. Her compositional tips in the midst of painting were also very helpful. Marcia will be doing a workshop in Italy through the Arts Center in September, 2008.

Beautiful painting, Vince! I love the strong colour and the unusual but strong composition.
