The Biltmore, Providence
watercolor  11x14" matted and framed

The landmark hotel in downtown
Providence, I've painted it again and
again. Cityscapes are a favorite motif
of mine, and I often work up sketches
I've made on the spot into watercolors
and oils. This is one of them. On a fine
summer evening I sat on the bank of
the Providence River sketching this
view in the twilight, and later turned it
into this little watercolor painting. The
woman who bought it said she and her
husband were married at the Biltmore.
Nice to think my little painting may add
to the memory of such a moment.
