Leaving The Museum

This past summer I went to see the Watercolor Exhibit at the Philadelphia Art Museum. It was a awesome event, I was blown away by 1/2 dozen inspiring artist topped off by Sargent and Winslow Homer whose best works had been saved to the end of the tour. I left the museum and walked down J F K Boulevard on my way to the Dick Blick art store on Chestnut Street. The scene from the top of the steps was inspiring. I had my camera with me so I snapped a few photos.
“Leaving the Art Museum” was painted from these photos in my studio in September of 2017. I like the way the shape of the trees and the flags drew the viewer in to city hall. I also like the way William Penn stood at the top. I chose not the paint the scaffolding that surrounded the building.
I found this painting difficult but enjoyed the process and hope I did it justice.
