Bill Rhea


This is one of my favorite paintings in our family room. Bill execution of the painting shows he is heavy handed with the brush, and you really need to get close to the painting to see all the details that Bill wants to show you. The light and shadow playing on the walls of Sienna. You can almost make out the license number on the Fiat 500. The decorative iron hanger that a sign hangs from, on the forefront of the right hand side. A light on top of the sign is beautiful too.

The warmth from the color palate make it perfect for a wall space that is admired, you can stare at it instead of the window. The tower touching the perfect blue sky conjures up a warm spring day with the illusion of nothing going wrong. Just look into the painting and imagine the warm sun hitting your face, and taking in that moment of content.
