First Snow - new painting by Dean Bradley

Our trip into Arthur's Pass in mid-June gave Dean the inspiration to create a series of mountain-scapes  Here is the first painting of this new series, which is currently on show at Parker Gallery in Nelson.

First Snow
It's the first time we've added a frame to the painting, and we were unsure how the three dimensional nature of this work would sit within a frame. It creates a really interesting optical illusion, with the sky within the frame and the lower sections standing out from it. We are really happy with the results - thanks very much to the Framing Rooms!

Parker Gallery opened its doors on 17 December, and is a great addition to the range of art galleries in Nelson. It is located in Wakatu Square (near Anzac Park) and is an extension of Neville Parker's Icon Gallery in Upper Moutere - http://www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/73960898/icon-gallery-expands-into-nelson
