building work

June 11, 2012

Summer has kicked in and I have a list of really delightful projects that I am working on; interiors, exhibitions, teaching and writing. Just the way I like it.  The first bit of research that I have gotten to do is on American painter and naturalist Charles Willson Peale.  Credited with documenting the founders of our country, Peale also created the first American Natural History museum. I am fascinated by this image of the painting the Staircase Group, depicting Peale’s sons running up the stairs-with one real stair…..  Doesn’t it say it all regarding the drawn environment and the built environment?
