The Dining Room

24" x 24" Oil on gallery-wrapped canvas - Personal Collection With a few, key, salvaged architectural elements such as this arched window frame above, we were able to design our house to incorporate other similar items before actual construction began. This painting is a very close reproduction of what the dining area in our house actually looks like. We found the old, arched church window frame in extremely poor condition. It needed pulling back together, gluing and clamping, having caulking and putty chiseled off both sides, bolting with lag bolts, belt sanding and hand sanding, and finally I cut, drilled, and bolted steel bars onto it for both added strength, and aesthetic reasons.
