Columns Of Light, 10x8
This detail was painted from photo reference I took while in Ohio this past summer. It depicts a corner of the Hart Mansion in Minerva. Built just after the Civil War in an Italianate Victorian style, the mansion now serves as a fine restaurant. I found the arrangement of this trio of columns to be unusually beautiful and a wonderful example of what's known in design circles as the Divine Proportion, or Golden Ratio.
