Title: Door to the villa
Weight: 4.0 lbs.
This original oil painting for sale is based on a photo I shot while hanging out of a bus on the way back to Santa Marguerita from Portofino. The waterside of an ancient villa had a large wooden door that led out to a stone walkway along the sea. Golden afternoon light strikes the stone walls, highlighting its rustic personality

R. W. "Bob" Goetting is a third generation Californian born in Sacramento who has painted scenes primarily from California, France and Italy for nearly 30 years. He has studied the work of the masters in the galleries and museums of London, Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid, Florence and Rome. He has exhibited his work in various galleries and shows in the San Joaquin Valley and the central California coast area. His work is in collections from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Amsterdam.
I work to capture a feeling, a state of mind, an environment. Using both direct and indirect painting techniques, I develop a surface consistence that is in many cases just as much fun to look at as the colors used. Typically my canvases have an evolved, tactile prominence; layers of color and texture, and yet still maintain a balance between structure and sponteneity. My work has an exuberant, sometimes rustic feel to it, which makes it easy to recognize by those who collect it or are familiar with it. It is this individualistic quality that I strive to achieve.
I have formal college art education but I am largely self-taught. I have an extensive art library covering art from ancient times forward, and I have studied the works of masters in California, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Florence, Madrid and Rome.
