- Charles H. Reinike III -
oil on canvas
40" X 60" (uf) 46" X 66" (fr)
This is one of Reinike's symbolic paintings from his Arch Series. The pavers in the piazza form a cross, creating a spiritual reference. From the balcony above, subtle figures witness the frenzy of the pigeons below. A single white dove is found in the window within the central arch. A pair of lemon trees are contained in pots within the squares.
The painting is large, but like a dream, it has a delicate softness that invites inspection and conversation.
