Rainbow over Richmond Oil Painting

Rainbow over Richmond on the James

Oil on Canvas              36 x 48 Inches                     $4600 Framed

The city of Richmond is situated on the falls of the James River. The James is an amazingly scenic and beautiful natural resource, home to waterfowl (notice the Great Blue Heron in the lower-left grass) and boasts Class IV rapids running right through the heart of the city. I witnessed this rainbow resting on the Federal Reserve of Richmond and the downtown skyline when kayaking from Pony Pasture to Reedy Creek one summer afternoon. In a way, it symbolizes the revitalization of Richmond, particularly the Richmond waterfront as a vital source of life (water supply), recreation, sports, entertainment (Brown's Island), and incomparable beauty. This is a significantly large oil painting that needs to be seen in person.
