The painting on the left is not quite finished. I still have to resolve the space deep inside the archway. My brain is working on it, but I have laid it aside for now, while I explore stii another abstraction bases on a series of condos.
On Easter this year I took my camera to Cranbrook, not far away from my home. It is an architectural gem, built at a time when the cost of perfection was still possible. The finest crafts people were available to produce whatever was wanted in the finest way possible, from architecture, to materials, to statuary, to tapestries, to furnishings. Because of the lack of people on the property that day, I felt I had access to so much of the Academy that I had never seen before. These paintings are a result of all I beheld that day. I had a stimulating time being engrossed with my subject matter in a playful, inventive manner. I am still working on the third painting of this series, but I know it is going to lead to other artistic adventures.
