About

'Diamonds in the Sky' urban architectural city scene acrylic painting from American realist Lynette Cook on a small scale. This unique original acrylic painting is 10 x 10 inches and is framed in a museum quality pale ash wood floater frame that is 11 x 11 x 2.75 inches. The work of art can both hang on a wall, or sit on a table or shelf. A stunning architectural scene focused on wrought iron and streaming light washing one of San Francisco's unique homes. Colors in kelly green with grey and a pop of blue in a flower pot, with stunning shadows. *Please note secondary image shows what the framing looks like. Once this newly completed painting is back from the framer, we will photograph it front and back and add to the post. Lynette Cook’s shadow-centric urban scenes — executed using exceptional concentration, patience, and skill — pay homage and provide clues to the individual lives of those who inhabit San Francisco’s Chinatown and neighboring communities. Yet the life-like acrylic paintings — capturing light as it dramatically moves across this unique environment with its utility poles, balconies, stairs, and laundry hanging out to dry — also represent that which is universal in human experience and connects people on a basic level. With meticulous detail and vibrant color strategically placed, the commonplace is celebrated and rises to the extraordinary. With meticulous detail, the commonplace is celebrated and rises to the extraordinary in this important series that was exhibited at California’s Morris Graves Museum in May of 2016. In the same year the artist was awarded a prestigious Pollock Krasner Foundation honorary grant.
