The Bright Spot, 8 x 10 inches
Fall Collection 2018. Original painting titled "The Bright Spot" by Christina Gates, signed on the back. Oil on cotton canvas. 8 x 10 x 3/4 inches (traditional profile, back stapled). Unframed, painted edges. Can be wired for hanging upon request.
About this Painting: “The Bright Spot” prominently features a cloud-like element without the darker ground that many of the others works in the series have. While this work literally has a bright spot in the center of the composition, it also asks us to look metaphorically for the bright moments amongst the dark ones. This painting is composed of mostly warm colors with a few notes of blue and green. It is one of the bolder compositions in the collection.
About the Fall Collection: This series of paintings is all about bright jewel tones and soft, hazy textures. They share a similar color palette with pops of alizarin, Indian yellow, magenta, phthalo blue, and viridian. Cloud elements are featured heavily, often in high contrast to a darker ground. These petite works would be perfect for a cozy space. Black floater frames are recommended to accentuate the paintings.
