Adding nature based art to public spaces such as office lobbies, libraries, hospital waiting areas, and town halls affords a sense of calm and serenity to the built environment. For this example, Autumn, River Road, a large scale painting I created for the Topsfield Town Hall, I placed the painting at the top of the stairs. When visitors to the space walk up the stairs, they feel as though they are walking onto one of the favorite roads in the town, River Road. The idea of extending a 2D space-a flat wall-into a 3D space is a technique first used by the ancient Roman wall painters. Here are in-situ examples of this concept.
