Wall, Dumbarton Oaks

A peaceful oasis in a hectic city, on an early spring afternoon.

That is very beautiful...

This is lovely...there is some vocabulary borrowed from the classical architectural rendering language?

Thanks, Kaylyn. No, but it does have that look--must be the subject!

Susan Abbott said...

I have treasured Dumbarton Oaks all my life and it is your layered composition that fascinates me.

Thank you for writing, Cel. Dumbarton Oaks is a beautifully composed and very "layered" landscape, with "room after room" of small gardens to explore--hidden and intimate areas that open up into wider, natural views. I wish I spent more time there when I lived in Washington--but I plan to return when I'm down there teaching. Meanwhile, I have a few more paintings from my visit to post over the next few days.
