“Red Canoe” is an oil on canvas painting that can brighten up anyone’s room. Its bright and warm colors are really pleasing to the eyes. In this painting, you’re taken to an old river town. From your point of view, you can see the calm river and a jester riding on a red canoe. It’s a perfect sight as the sky is blue and the white, fluffy clouds make the sky even more beautiful. You can see a bridge over the canal not so far in the distance. It leads to the lovely town with the orange rooftops. You can see the reflection of the town buildings in the water. The jester on the canoe seems to be heading to the town as he rows slowly in the river. He has a smile on his face as if he’s excited on his great adventure.
