Golden Twilight

Oil on canvas - 122x61cm (48x24in) - 2013
© Horacio Cardozo

Horacio Cardozo just seems to have this uncanny ability to capture moments that only exist between times and between what is and what isn’t. The details of his oil portrait are lush and decadent without being overbearing or too complex.
This boat painting takes me to a place where I simply am. I don’t know where I am or where I’m going. The only thing I know is that I am tiny amongst an endless aqueous giant and I’m perfectly okay with that. This painting reminds me of absolute serenity, peace- the ultimate calm. The beautiful gradient on the majestic waters is just as breathtaking as the skies beyond it.
