Walt's House, Camden, NJ
oil on canvas
30 x 50 inches

This is a custom painting made for the lounge of the Walt & Whitman Brewery and Coffeehouse in Saratoga Springs, NY. This painting depicts Walt Whitman’s Camden, NJ home and is based on a found photograph from the 1970s showing buildings that have since been restored. The buildings are painted representationally in gray with subtle color, but the painting includes elements of fantasy referring to his belief in Transcendentalism, such as a deep blue sky with milky way stars and a light on in his window. The lights and stars allude to the possibility of rebirth and regeneration.
