For an open commission for a drawing of a Japanese temple, I chose this view of Eihei-ji, a Zen Buddhist monastery in Fukui prefecture, for the many things about it I love, including the stairs, the avenue of huge trees, and the central building's jewel-like setting within nature. The drawing is 12 by 15 inches.
Excited to have begun a project of drawings and paintings of the beautiful architecture of the town of Garden City, Long Island, where I live and have had family--and interest in the buildings--all my life. Amazing historic structures, like this great Victorian Bishop's house on Cathedral Ave. There will be an exhibit of the series at the Garden City Library this fall.
