Painted entirely on location during the Plein Air Easton competition. The moody interior and dramatic chandelier inspired me to paint this piece. I stood on the sidewalk and looked through a shop window in order to paint this view. The turquoise color to the right of the chandelier is actually a reflection in the window of the building across the street. I thought that adding the color would create a nice counterpoint to all the warm tones in the painting.
