The Sun Porch – Featured Art Print

Cold or cool (depending on where you live) winter days invite me to settle down with a good book in a setting like the featured art print. I love the type of sun porch you find in old Victorian homes, which is the basis for the art print I created. While touring this old mansion, I grabbed a shot of this room and wanted to create a print that relayed the feeling I expressed above. Using a fauvism technique I wanted to create a unique look for this room, but still keep the same inviting feeling. I liked the composition of the french doors, one open and one closed to highlight the entry into the room. I love color and abstract interpretations of common scenes, so using a fauvism technique, what was a typical common entry into a sun porch became a little bit more inviting and interesting. Thoughts?

New Orleans Victorian – Featured Art Print

 

The setting is the Garden District of New Orleans, Louisiana. This area is known for tree-lined streets with large mansions. The district is like stepping back in time with the beauty of the different architectural styles these homes represent.

For this particular print, I used a gothic oil technique that uses strong brush strokes and warm earth tones creating an old world look. I created this print to not only look and feel “old world”, but to also focus on the intricate architectural details typical with Victorian Mansions. Thoughts?
