Visitors to Lake Tahoe are welcome to come by the Marcus Ashley Gallery in Heavenly Village, a favorite haunt of the locals for everything art. The gallery’s location offers a marvelous view of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Nothing thrills the gallery’s patrons more than the prospect of having art enthusiasts explore the collections on display in such an exquisite destination. You’ll enjoy browsing through the Rolinda Stotts art, a series of nature-inspired pieces dosed in tranquility, beauty, and grandeur.
The artist drew inspiration from the fresco paintings by past masters after a trip to Italy with her husband. She wanted to imitate the aged quality of their work but with a contemporary twist. Stotts developed the Bella Rotta process, a technique that gives her paintings a lovely weathered look. Taking home one of her pieces is like getting to keep a part of a mural from Italy.
Ferdinand reveals a rooster striding with confidence across the canvas. Vibrant feathers frame its sharp features and plump frame. The painting shares a glimpse of Stott’s growing up years on a dairy farm, a time that taught her to respect nature and its creatures. Notice how the deep cracks of the canvas appear as if the rooster is painted directly on a wall. Ferdinand will surely make the perfect company in a home or commercial establishment.
