I painted the plein air landscape part of this painting on the terrace of Belvoir Terrace in the Berkshires. Western Massachuesets is truly a cultural and natural paradise. The stone texture, Greek vase and cherries were painted months later in the studio. As I was painting the sunset, someone remarked, "Oh a little of this, a little of that." I call it assymilating styles.
This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.
