Small Works Available

I have now small works available at Rose Gallery. Here are a couple of examples and descriptions of the works. For more information contact 417-782-7177.

Villa Pamphilli
This piece was completed in 2005 while studying in Rome. The lower half of this image was rendered while exploring the Villa Doria Pamphili, which is a seventeenth century villa located in the quarter of Monteverde in Rome, Italy. Today Villa Pamphilli is the largest landscaped public park in Rome. The upper half is a depiction of Caravaggio’s 1602-03 painting entitled The Entombment of Christ. I drew this while visiting the Pinacoteca Vaticana in Vatican City. Notes from my travels can be seen scribed across the image as well.

This piece depicts Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore of Florence, Italy in pen and ink. The basilica is one of Italy's largest churches. Its brick dome remains the largest ever constructed. The ink drawing is layered over a Prismacolor rendering of a statue found in a nearby cemetery. Drawings of byzantine religious icons can be seen faded back in the bottom right corner. The partial skeletal study on the far was created using a solvent transfer process.
