16"x24" oil on canvas • This painting was a star at the last Beverly Hills show. Of course, there is not a piece that outshines the ethereal appearance (just out the back, under the umbrella) of The Spousal Unit, but this piece made a solid attempt. • Pieces like this are all about staging. The old house must be served up to you as if on a platter. Beyond the obvious elements of composition and perspective, I try to achieve this via values, temperatures, intensities, etc. It is usually the "etc." part that gives me the most trouble.
