Dutch Opera Series

Dutch Opera Installation

While visiting the historic Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, England, I studied and sketched the Baroque Dutch still-life paintings by Willam van Aelst, Simon Verelst, and Jan Weenix. Sketching the pictorial structure of these small, unassuming pictures, I discovered an underlying energy that borders on the ecstatic. The result of this initial encounter in Oxford is The Dutch Opera series (oil on canvas) (approximately 80 x 60 in).
