Mercury Courtyard from Balcony
oil on wood, 9″ x 12″, 2019
Many parts unite to form the whole of this Italianate courtyard. Athletic Mercury looks east, tiled roof hollows make ideal sparrow apartments, and another Alexander Eschweiler mansion now Central Seventh-Day Adventist Church looms across the street. A hospital peeks over the trees. Balcony columns keep a steady rhythm to the string band playing underneath.
Includes pickled white finish maple float frame with hanging hardware installed, so that you can hang it up immediately.
