Venetian Reflections is a lovely example of the duality in Bunner’s style. There is a combination of specificity and lyrical, sweeping brushstrokes: the tangible and the fanciful. The horizon is spectacular, with the buildings bleeding into their reflections on the glassy water, but before this effect becomes too mesmerizing Bunner draws the eye across the canvas with the red sails and buoy. His sense of color and composition is very sophisticated.
