Simple Pleasures print Unmatted
Signed and numbered limited edition 900

One of my favorite artists is Lawrence Alma-Tadema, English painter of Dutch descent, popular in the Victorian era for his elaborately detailed depictions of ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Simple Pleasures is an homage to Alma-Tadema. This was my first painting in oils and remains one of my favorites. My longtime friend and fellow artist, Steve Noyes, guided me in the painting process. For the printing, I moved to Dallas for a couple of weeks while Noyes patiently walked me through the process. Many corrections later, I had a print the same image size as the original which it matched identically in hue, value, and vibrance. Thanks, Steve.
