In her travels through South America, Rossi visited Chile and the Atacama Salt Lake region. These are the largest salt flats in Chile. She was inspired to create this oil painting from the beautiful views of the mountains covered with snow and the reflections on the mineral blue Salt Lake. Blues resemble the crystal salt lake and whitish bluish salt flats. Browns with hints of white represent the snow-covered mountains of the Chilean Andes. A feeling of beauty and wonder of nature is expressed by the use of brushes, knives, drying oil media and oil colors. Rossi used Dick Blick Premier Cotton Canvas and Winsor and Newton, Utretch and Senelier handmade oil colors. Rossi only ships artwork stretched right now. Delivery includes packaging materials and a Masonite-like board to protect the work.
