Pastel-Toned Abstract Impressionist Venice Grand Canal Landscape

Pastel pink, blue, and purple toned Venice Canal abstract impressionist landscape by American artist Jane Peterson. This painting depicts what seems to be an early morning scene featuring the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy, and the Roman Catholic church, Santa Maria della Salute. Peterson's workmanship is very apparent in this painting with her brushstrokes and impressionist style. Signed at the bottom right. Framed in a gold antique frame.
