"Level With Me"

12 x 12"
oil on masonite

Several of my new paintings were inspired not only by the art in the National Gallery, but the space surrounding us as we walk the galleries. There's great attention to tones marrying well with the paintings - including the ceilings, walls and floors - which creates a natural flow and comfort to the visitor. Personally, I like that, opposed to extremely high ceilings and white walls. It's pleasing to my senses.

This new piece is a more open viewpoint - showing how we can feel so small among the large paintings - and how we naturally gravitate closer to the work that is more eye-level.

Hi, I've been escaping to the hushed comfort of the National Gallery since I was a kid. You've captured it so stunningly, and are so right about the wall colors setting off the paintings. It creates a magical space in which to linger. Just like your paintings do!
