Boathouses (SOLD)

These boathouses were built in the 1850’s and are a historic part of Canandaigua. This painting is almost like two paintings in one because the bottom half is a mirror image of the top half, although it’s wavy and distorted. Architecture is usually more difficult to paint than nature images because the proportions and shapes have to be accurate. Add a reflection beneath the architecture and then you’ve got yourself a challenging painting!
