About this artwork
Artist Joe Giuffrida presents a view of a coastal Irish town. He paints the long horizontal lines in the scene as the dominant design element. Each land and ocean mass acts as a puzzle piece component, interlocking with the others through colors and values. The figures by the beach create a sense of the immensity of the cliffs. Joe highlights the beautiful qualities, such as the lovely yellow ochre sand, the spring green turf, and the cloudscape in the distance.
