Art as Gifts: Princeton and Wall Street
Sometimes, I get to work on commissions I'm REALLY excited about. This was one of those times. They were destined to be a Christmas and graduation present from a grandmother to her granddaughter who would be graduating from Princeton in the spring and will be working at Goldman Sachs in the fall. Princeton holds a place in my heart from my summer working at the now-defunct New Jersey Opera (which was based on campus). I was able to use one of my favorite photos (of my favorite building!) from my time on the Princeton campus, and go take my own photos of Wall Street to work from to create these two complimentary paintings. I tweaked the colors so they would go nicely if hung together, and when viewed side by side you can see they have somewhat mirrored compositions. I was happy with the result, and with the pairing!
