Original Oil Painting Washington, DC Landscape Tidal Basin 

Frame: Custom Matte Silver Finished Floater Frame

Washington DC may be one of the most beautiful cities in the world during Springtime. This soft, gentle landscape celebrates Washington and her ethereal afternoon light before a spring shower.  Set against deepening skies, the beautiful cherry blossoms we love and treasure have a certain luminescence as the light changes. The fragile new grasses appear chartreuse in this beautiful light. These spectacular colors are reflected in the surrounding waters, enveloping the viewer in its calmness and beauty. This is a moment in our beautiful Capital: a city that welcomes us all.

The selections of pinks in this painting are a spectrum of pales to magenta; the watery blues carry with it a soft misty grey. With this painting, one can easily daydream of a Living Room designed in tonal blue-grey neutrals, with an accent of chartreuse in glassware. Or perhaps a Master Suite, designed as a serene retreat with compatible textured fabrics. The size is most versatile, making it most welcome in any interior or commercial space.
