The Long View


The Long View
6"x 6" oil on canvas wrap 1 1/2 wide  $140 SOLD

see below


Artist Note
One of the joys of a high spot 
is the lovely long view you get.
This is Colorado.

I usually paint on panels
but had a couple of these gallery wraps
canvases and yes...as you can see, I
actually painted around the edges.

The advantage of these type 
of canvases is they do not 
have to be framed or hung 
but can stand on their own 
anywhere you want to put them

Back before I started fracturing 
I used to paint Calla Lilies 
in this format. I would paint the edge
or pop them in this floater frame.
The 6"x6" size you get 6 of them for 40 bucks
less than 10. a frame.
I would spray them a color to match 
the painting or even leave them natural.
They were very popular.

  2. This is so appealing, Julie. I can almost breathe that crisp autumn air! You painted the edges so cleverly; your image flows wonderfully naturaĺly around them. As is often the case with your paintings, this appears as if it might be much larger than 6x6. You manage to capture plenty of detail, yet retain your impressionist style. How masterful you are! (I also like these deep canvases for the same reasons you do. Panels are easy to ship, but these canvases are super for gallery pieces, whether framed or unframed.)

    1. Thanks for such a great comment, Helene. You always pay us the complement of really “looking” at the painting
      I was admiring your new painting, Book Club. A very special glimpse into the future.

    1. Thanks, Joan. I enjoyed reading about the Urban Sketchers celebrations and seeing your sketches. Laughed out loud when I had looked for peacocks before I read the comments!

  11. Your painting is lovely, Julie! There are so many "long views" in Colorado. It's scenic everywhere you look. Love those big, strong trees in front. Aspen? Poplar? Birch? Beautiful color contrasts.

  12. Thank you, Carol. I presume they were aspens (because we were near Aspen!) but know how the silver birch looks so similar.
    Hope you7 are continuing to get back to normal and look forward to seeing new work soon.
