Race Day Paintings by Chris Reilly

This collection is particularly special featuring monochromatic tones with highlights of gold. These paintings are oil on canvas (no glass) and framed in a silver frame with white matts.

These new paintings by Chris Reilly have a "Race Day" feel to them - Chris is constantly observing, and when she was invited to attend a beautiful soiree in Melbourne for the Melbourne Cup last year, she was in heaven - beautiful women, clothes, hats and champagne in abundance. I can just see these three paintings hung all in a row - perhaps down a hallway, or above a sofa table. Chris is just so popular in the gallery and has been for a very long time, as her paintings are so hard to resist and totally evocative. I love them!
