The images depict selected gallery shows and various client homes. Paintings are displayed in their environments with natural lighting. Often, the glow of light is reflected in the surface of the work, making it richer and fuller in depth, exhibiting brilliancy of colors.

Ultimately, it is when the work of art is placed into its environment that the real effective means of exploring and evoking the nature of painting become possible.
