This was a en plein air done from my back porch facing west while I was living in London.  The specific location was in Finsbury Park off of Wray Crescent. This painting is framed in a white box frame.  The frame dimensions measure 25.5" x 20" x 1.5" deep.

Getting to Know Carl

Carl grew up in rural Kansas with little exposure to fine art, but a wonderful school art teacher pushed him to pursue a creative path. His still life work is influenced by Wayne Thiebaud’s stylized realism, candy colors, and visible brushstrokes. Inspired by objects and scenes from his daily life, Carl includes items of both traditional and contemporary origin in his still life compositions. Carl also demonstrates his comprehensive understanding of the human form in his figurative and portrait work. He offers commissioned portraits from life in the New York metropolitan area, usually formatted as a two-hour experience with the sitter.
