Art Notes

Built between 1888 – 1896 in Asheville, N.C. for George W. Vanderbilt, “Biltmore House” is America’s largest residence. The estate is visited by more than 1,000,000 dazzled tourists each year.

My challenge in painting Elegant Evening at Biltmore® was not to convey the heroic scale of this fairy-tale castle, but to make it warmly personal. I utilized glittering lights to suggest a festive evening affair in progress. I invite you to climb aboard your elegant coach and join the celebration.
