Charles Allis Art Museum from the Garden
oil on wood, 9″ x 12″, 2019
This painting was made in the garden of the Charles Allis Art Museum.
The house is silhouetted by the bright summer light. Even though it is July and the hottest week of the year, under the canopy of a stately maple it’s not so bad. This house exterior seems austere, but on closer inspection shows its playfulness with windows of different sizes that don’t line up and gables of varying height trick your sense of perspective.
Includes clear lacquer maple finish float frame with hanging hardware installed, so that you can hang it up immediately.
“The purpose of a picture frame is to protect the art and present it to its best advantage. When framed properly, an artifact is far more likely to remain in good condition for a long period of time.”
