Northern California's master watercolor artist Christensen has taken his hyperrealistic watercolors to the next level again! It is not enough for him to just paint a beyond photorealistic painting in one of the most difficult mediums which happens to be watercolor. Instead Christensen continues to challenge himself and continues to show his collectors how talented he truly is.
First there was the triptych (three)...."Estate of Bliss" - realeased in October 2009. After it's release it didn't take long for this original watercolor to sell at the highest priced for a Christensen original to that date. There was no sticker shock when it came to this piece...after all the proud owner of this painting essentially has three Christensen original watercolors. Additionally, it did not take long for the Estate of Bliss limited editions to sell at a rate that took them quickly to the Eric Christensen Art best seller list. Today, the Estate of Bliss limited edition canvas prints are almost completely sold out in all sizes and editions.
"A feast for the eyes and a feat of engineering describes Christensen’s first triptych. According to Christensen, composing the piece so that each painting successfully carried the proper flow of motion, and then assembling the three pieces so that flow remained strong across all three was the most challenging part of this piece. Normally, he will start and finish one painting at a time. However, with this triptych it was required that he develop each piece simultaneously so that colors matched exactly and elements flowed perfectly. What is most amazing about this piece is that the three panels are designed to work side-by-side when hung horizontally, and top-to-bottom when hung vertically!" (Eric Christensen Art).
"Each of these wines comes from grapes grown on the estate – in combination with the abundant repast surely creates a “state of bliss”!" (Eric Christensen Art).

At Gallery 1870, we had known about the idea of the painting that Eric Christensen had nicknamed "The Four Seasons" for quite some time and we have been long anticipating this new release. Now that it is finished...and appropriately named "Season Finale" this Christensen watercolor masterpiece is better than we could have imagined.
In "Season Finale" (released May 2018) Christensen showcases the four seasons of vines and wines. This four season quadriptych painting is pictured as "Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter" however, the viewer can hang the pieces in any order they choose. With "Season Finale" each painting stands alone and connects to the proceeding and following seasons. Now you can capture all your favorite seasons of the wine country in one painting.
