Frances Vecchi specializes in large, Romantic Realist oil paintings with a touch of classical, Dutch, and French Impressionist influence from her wide range of experience and study. Their intense colors and ardent viewpoint are emotionally spellbinding. The paintings evoke the thrill that we feel every time we venture out into our beautiful, complex and ever-changing world. In a swirling pulse of lively oil color and texture, we experience the many moods and glorious visual richness of light as it shifts and changes with the season.
