An Imperishable Crown

An Imperishable Crown - oil on museum panel - 12"x8"

This piece will feature in my coming solo exhibit at Jorgensen Fine Art in the New Year.
You will also be able to see a selection of my work at Ib Jorgensen's Christmas event exhibition
which opens soon on December 1st - details to follow.

As well as at the recent Irish Antiques Dealers' Fair, which opened at the Royal Dublin Society in September, I learnt that Ib represented my work this month at VUE, Ireland's National Contemporary Art Fair at the Royal Hibernian Academy which brings together 17 of the leading Irish contemporary galleries from around the country.

The painting above harks back to my time spent painting in studio at the Art Students League of New York.
The studios at the top of the building had this diffused north light which is remembered here. It filtered in from fogged out windows set at an angle in the roof and made for a wonderful atmosphere.
