Fine Art Painting of the Day
William Berra
William Berra "Study Between Swims" 14 x 14 Oil on Metal Leaf

William Berra could be the best travel agent ever.  Florence, Venice, Sorrento, Marina Grande to view Vesuvius from a distance or Paris all far away places we have dreamt about - painted on gold leafed canvases beckoning us to explore the very corners of the earth.  He delivers adventures of warm afternoons spent on the beaches of France or a crisp morning walk in Santorini.

William Berra‘s spontaneous plein air paintings are influenced by 19th Century, Jean Baptiste-Camille Corot. Corot painted his travels and brought the work back to the studio. Corot let his work evolve from those moments.  Like Corot, William Berra has an unconventional approach - he paints what is striking. Berra says, “…It’s a wonderful feeling to glance at something and see a painting, then know it’s yours.  I have a million ideas brewing taking me on adventures that I never anticipated.”
