Newest Painting and What Inspired It

Dawn Has Broken

 Two years ago I was visiting the Nelson Atkin's Museum in Kansas City, Missouri and saw The Record Player by Karl Hoger I was very moved by it, so later on I made my version of it and infused it with memories of spending hours and hours listening to records and with a love of painting intimate interiors and shadows and light.  I think my version is a little bit more joyful, but given the time he lived in, it's easy to see why his is a bit dark.
