The first time she saw a double rainbow, it took her breath away. She was in Venice. She was running home just after being caught in a spectacular summer rainstorm when she stopped abruptly on the Accademia Bridge. “Arco belleno” everyone in the area uniformly marveled. The clouds were an inky dark purple mirrored off the aqua-colored canals, surely the inspiration of so many Venetian painters of the distant past. With a slight part between threatening formations, two distinguishable rainbows appeared side by side.

The second time, years later, she was sailing in Eastchester Bay and Long Island Sound. Having grown up on a riverbank almost a hundred miles away, she always seems to find a way to be around water.

Image Size: approx. 7½" x 5" (19.05 x 12.7 cm)
Framing recommended- floated or with a custom cut archival matte boards or pre-cut mattes having a 5” x 7” opening.

A one of a kind painting on a page of an old science book dated 1962. Your painting will be individually encased in a clear archival sleeve and mailed to you in non-bendy packaging. Matte board and frame not included. This small painting is perfect for a gift, or for adding a pop of color to an empty wall or bookshelf. This listing is for the first item pictured.

Because this item was painted on a page removed from an old book, it may have areas of discoloration, small tears, and evidence of binding - all of which add to the beauty and unique quality of this piece.
