This is an oil painting of a hazy day on Lake Lanier. Rossi lives near Lake Lanier, one of the most popular lakes in Georgia. This work is a study of light and atmosphere and visual truth. It is the interpretation of the islands in Lake Lanier on a very humid and hazy morning. Rossi wanted to create a painting using the techniques of the Impressionists. She studied the works of Monet and Renoir to learn their techniques along with various textbooks and videos. She was inspired to create a girl walking through a garden to remind of a summer spent at the gardens in Montmartre, France. She used the technique of broken colors, pointillism, experimenting with light, composition, and cropping. She used brushes, knives on a Dick Blick Premier Cotton Canvas with Winsor/Newton, Utretch and Senelier handmade oil colors. She only ships artwork stretched and delivery includes packaging materials and a Masonite-like board to protect the work.
