Artist Statement

Inspiration at the Met

My Inspiration to paint this magnificent architectural treasure which houses a collection of sculpture encompassing two floors of open glass in the American Wing seemed illogical. It presented  far too many art treasures to deal with in a composition. After returning from our New York City trip commemorating my eightieth birthday sponsored by my son, I decided to go for it. The vision was still fresh in my memory and I would hate myself if I didn’t try.  Impressionism allows more freedom and a practical way to tackle such an overwhelming interior. A quick sketch of a woman taking a photo and a gentleman with a cane in left foreground brought the human element to the composition. The idea of  linking sculptures of ancient history with the pedestrian of today seemed very logical.

Here’s a link to an article I had published regarding the sources of my inspiration, entitled:
The Metropolitan Museum Sculpture Court, which was published by Article Hub.
