Golden sun bathes a mélange of images as Claudia Thomaz exalts the icons of Rio de Janeiro. Sharing the scenery of Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas in southern Rio, she depicts a windsurfer as well as children flying kites and spinning tops on the lakeshore. Luxurious high-rise condos contrast with a traditional favela set on the steep hillside and the very different lifestyles of their residents.
Titled "Contraste carioca" in Portuguese.

"Romantic Impressionism at its Best"
Beautiful. Thomaz has a wonderful sense of the romantic and the skills needed to bring her ideas to the canvas. The colors and textures match the mood of the couple at the focal point of the scene; a scene whose composition is almost perfect. What can't be seen in the jpg photo on the web site is the paintings plasticity which Thomaz achieved by using thick drops of paint on the leaves in the foreground. I live in a relatively large European city and I first searched the galleries here for an appropriate anniversary gift for my wife, but found nothing on offer in any price range that matches the romantic emotions conveyed by this painting. Thomaz is a talented artist and, for the right occasion, I would not hesitate to buy another one of her works.
