"Red Velvet Layer Cake" 2014 oil on canvas 30" x 30"
(Private Collection, Marblehead, MA)
A friend asked me to paint the childhood home of her husband as a surprise birthday gift. The house is an impressive Italianate structure on a hill overlooking the Hudson River. I tried contacting the curent owner of the house, an artist from New York City, to see if I could make some sketches on site. She never returned my calls. Those New York artists! So I worked from photos.
