Description: 

Diane Romanello, born in New York on 1944, is a self-taught artist whose landscape paintings are characterized by an aesthetic of beauty and charm, inviting the viewer into an idealized naturalistic world. The scene captures an idyllic view from a wooden deck with railing and stairs that lead directly to a beach. This picturesque setting conjures to mind a serene day where calm waters lap against a white sand beach. The surf stretches into the horizon, with some land features that border the furthest point. Three boats are are depicted further out to sea. The peaceful landscape is accentuated by four palm trees that are visible behind the white deck railing. Green grass creates a semi border between the deck and the beach area. The artist creates a sense of soft light, filtering through the cirrus clouds
