Here is the finished painting, "Change of Classes", ready for final varnishing and framing. I hope viewers will feel compelled to study the piece in detail looking for the many nuances of campus life in the early 21st century I've tried to capture, as well as the details that make this scene uniquely Penn State University Park.










Closeup Details


You can see the gradual increase in detail from background to foreground, while trying to keep a consistency in style and brushwork.

This painting has been a long, involved process, but has also a very rewarding one. Now, it's on to the unveiling to the general public.
