A smart place to eat lunch



Maproom Cafe, BPL

20" by 20"
Oil with a palette knife on panel
$500 framed

I love to go to the Boston Public Library at lunch time, especially when the weather is nice and you can enjoy a sandwich out in the beautiful courtyard. This lunchspot indoors, The Maproom, is a wonderful alternative should the weather outside not be so nice. I love the feel of this room with it's beautiful tile ceiling and large windows. This painting is large for me and I painted it while we were working at the Art Gallery at Patriot Place last weekend. You can see an update on our weekend by checking out that blog.

What a gorgeous painting and such a glorious room! I love old libraries such as this. That curved ceiling is amazing and I am wondering if it is painted in reality? There is just something timeless and awe inspiring for me with the smells of old books, the quiet, the knowledge that dwells within...
