I've always had a love for architecture, especially residential structures. The Victorian style is a favorite of mine, particularly when completed in masonry (rather than wood). I lived in Columbus, Ohio for nearly four years and fell in love with that city's surviving Victorian neighborhoods. I have since used some of these examples as source material for recent works.
"Night Windows," 24 by 18 inches, oil on stretched canvas, completed in August 2008. This was the second canvas I completed based on a beautiful High Victorian brick mansion located on East Broad Street in Columbus. The house has survived into the 21st century and is now leased out as commercial real estate.
