Certificate of Authenticity Included

You will, I promise, see the little city or town nestled in the ravine and up to the palisade. It's nestled under the orange-yellow sky.

A photo was given to us as a challenge by our art guild. It had a tall, broad, cloudy sky, with a narrow spit of land and minute buildings at the bottom. I expressed the clouds with blue and purple tonal glazes and laid on a heavy purplish black strip of ground at the bottom. Sandwiched between the lowest layer of clouds and the earth's surface was an eerie energized green and yellow aura. The moment before I was about to add these tiny, distant grain silos from the photo, a guild member asked me to turn the canvas upside down. We saw so many more images this way, I was compelled to reinforce them, including a minute city at the top of the canvas instead of the buildings that were originally to be added to the bottom. The sky had become a stream, and the village was now Upside Town.

Please also note that the in-situ image shows an additional mat and frame that may be added but are not included or necessary. The deep 1-1/2" edges of your canvas have been painted as extensions of the main composition.

Upside Town arrives prewired, ready to hang.
