The second piece I decided I would use for my gallery is " A view of Cincinnati from Forest Hills, Kentucky.
I did some research and could not find an artist, but I there is a date listed which is 1855.
I thought this piece fit perfectly in this gallery because of the scenery and time of the day that is portayed shows the sun on the right side of the painting going down. Or at least the colors suggest so.
Aside from the overall feeling that this painting gives off, the whole gallery I wanted to give of a dream like sense, and I feel like aside from the subtle hints the green gives off on the trees, it is made obvious that it is an oil painting, along with the colors of the water, it is just relaxing. Even makes me wanna take a nap looking at it.
