Saturday 12 artists met to paint in the Butler Institute of American Art. Some painted an interior view of the museum, some chose a particular work to copy. I chose this painting. The original 30" x 25" is done in large thick loose brush strokes. It was painted in 1945 by Louis Betts. The museum director, Lou Zona, came by while I was working on this. He told me the two sisters stopped in not long ago to visit the painting. They are now quite elderly. Time passes.
