78 Beacon Street
36" x 12" x 2"
Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord
I painted this large painting while working at The Art Gallery at Patriot Place this past weekend. It really helps to pass the time to paint while working and the gallery visitors love to see an artist at work, especially the kids. So it's a win win.
I took a bunch of photos of these townhomes on Beacon Hill and the surrounding streets. I think this unusual size is perfect for capturing their majestic and historic feel. One visitor suggested that I start painting the buildings in Venice in this format too. I told her to send me photos so we'll see. Wouldn't that be fun!
