Willard Dixon
Waiting for Sophia / gentle soft cool blue grey scene with boat in fog

About

'Waiting for Sophia' features a gentle calm scene of a boat floating on a foggy lagoon. The subtle tree line and water current is a pleasure to meditate on while the oil on canvas painting is a celebration of serenity in blue (and hint of red). Willard Dixon is one of the finest American contemporary realist painters who has painted Northern California coastal landscapes for 35 years. His work captures the undeniable beauty of the West with its grand and humble spirit. The realist calm water painting with a boat is 23 1/2 x 36 1/2 inches and is framed is an artist fabricated pale blue hand painted wood floater frame. Dixon’s work can be found in many prestigious public collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Oakland Museum of Art / California, as well as numerous private art collections worldwide.
