This oil on canvas painting of Eustasia Island measures 30 x 50
inches unframed and 35 x 55 inches framed. This painting conveys
the feeling of a hot and humid misty dawn in August on the Connecticut
River near Deep River, CT. Using jewel like paint layed up over
time Leif has created the effect of veils of colored light hanging
over the river between Eustasia Island and Seldon's Island in
the back ground. This painting is framed in a hand made, finished
corner metal leafed frame made in Chester by Leif Nilsson. It
is signed and dated on the back and was made specifically for
this painting.This detail image of the painting truthfully reveals
and describes the texture and color of the brushwork and shows
the craftmanship of the frame. Take a look at more detail images
