More sacred spaces, New York City

Had the opportunity to visit New York City recently, and was there for a week. While there, I visited the site of another recent altarpiece of mine, I had been asked to execute some minor modifications on the paintings. It´s a private chapel right smack in midtown Manhattan and the space is quite an oasis of calm and tranquility in the midst of the legendary hustle and bustle of the Big Apple.

Here is a shot of the interior of the chapel:


…and a close-up shot of the central piece:


Finally, a trip wouldn't be complete without the random, personal notes in the sketchbook:

  2. Thanks, Linda!! Just saw your comment. Am away in the boondocks with bad internet service. Glad you like the sketches -- had a blast making them!
