"Garage" - Original Pastel Painting
The workmen at a parking garage in Florence, Italy, waved at her when they noticed artist Kelly Borsheim staring at them, but perhaps they did not believe her when she told them that she would make a pastel painting of them.
Kelly walks the Renaissance City constantly searching for beautiful patterns of light. And it is even better when people are involved.
This image was created from a parking garage on Via de Fossi in central Florence. The men were repairing the neon sign.
The extreme shadows caused by a late afternoon sun on the parking garage sign were what first caught the attention of the artist. However, the
Italian men working on the exterior wall gave an interesting point of action to the image.
This painting was created in pastels -- pure pigment -- on a highly textured watercolor paper. It is a thick strong paper and
offers a subtle texture to the art. Like all of Kelly's pastel and charcoal artworks, this one has been treated with a fixative spray and will ship safely to your home or office.
