A window sized painting!

Great Jones, NYC
40" x 30" x 2"
Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord

This is the view from my friends Wendy and Bill's place on Great Jones in NYC. We have been lucky enough to have stayed there a few times and I am always inspired by the views outside their windows. With this painting, I decided to capture that by actually painting the frame on of the window. Because of its large size, if you hung this on your wall, it would actually look like your view outside. Cool, huh?

And below are a few detail shots so you can see the palette knife texture up close. I always like how these look like little paintings themselves.

It really is a trompe l'oeil effect! Beautiful and the textures exquisite!
