Unframed - Choice of black or gold handmade frame

Painted en plein-air at a beach in Italy, Dalessio paints his muse, his wife, Tina. The sun cascades from behind her, abstracting and darkening her figure. Compositionally, her backlit figure cuts through the all-over blueness of the panel, highlighted by an orange illuminated undertone. This 12 x 8 inch painting is a study for a large, oil on linen painting entitled, Tina Backlit.

Signature: Yes, "MD 14" lower left corner
