I was recently contacted by Brown University to help them with their New Year's greeting. I was excited to help the friendly neighbors at the top of the hill (since my school was adjacent to it, down the hill). Because I've called Providence home for maybe a bit too long, being able to paint some of the architecture I know so very well was a pleasure. I was also glad to include a little bit of astronomy! It's also nice to work on seasonal pieces... in the actual season you're painting! Typically I'm painting snow scenes in July for publishing deadlines, so this was a nice change.
