Stanford Quad - SOLD

Pin It
"Stanford Quad"
Oil, 6" x 6"

I really love painting paintings of colleges and universities. Those four years (oops ... maybe five ...) of college represent such an importantt time in every teenager's life. College is a time to meet lifelong friends, find your passion, discover opportunities and even fall in love. I don't know of any other time in your life when you can live with your peers while discovering what you want to do (with the rest of your life).
When I am asked to paint a painting featuring a college I find myself wandering down memory lane ... so I am always refecting back on my four years at UCSB. I have also found that every time we travel to Stanford to visit my son, I remind him that I would love to attend college all over again at Stanford.  Fortunately my son no longer shows an expression of panic on his face ... he knows I am kidding ... but the memories of my four college years will last a lifetime.
So ... I hope this painting provides many great memories of Stanford. I do know the new owner has had many (and I do mean many ...) years at Stanford!

Il est toujours agréable de conserver des souvenirs de jeunesse... je pense que vous avez éprouvé beaucoup de plaisir à peindre cette toile... et peut-être avec une forme de nostalgie.

Nice. Such a vibrant rendering of the campus without being too literal. Congratulations.
