    I love to paint arched window scenes with acrylic paints on wood (4 ft x 4 ft) so that I can reprint them as Giclee prints. I custom make an arched frame with hard backing and gallery wrap each canvas. Each 'window' weighs about 10 lbs and is 38" x 38." I believe art does not always have to be square.

    I began painting these window scenes because I wanted an architectural feature that adjusts to the eye as one moves around to look through the window. The perspective changes as the angle changes. I love to paint with rich colors and have an open airy feeling, like looking out a window would give. These windows allow you to daydream and engage the imagination to where you might wander. I paint from pictures of places I have visited and embellish to create a dream space.
