One of two decorative pieces or imagined ruins, which I painted for a kindly local decorator when I was still in art school. This was his way of helping me along and I did, and still do, appreciate his generosity of spirit. His widow returned them to me after they closed their business doors many years later.
I had done some window dressing for this small shop while I was still in high school. When I consider now all the support and opportunities that came my way from local merchants to display my work, I realize my enormous good fortune.
