West Baden Springs Hotel
I used a vintage black and white shot of the West Baden Springs Hotel to help me do this painting. I was volunteering as a tour guide during the restoration of this hidden Indiana gem, which has just reopened for business. The recent opening black-tie gala was a smashing success, and the ol’ gal probably looks better today than she did over 100 years ago when she first opened. One of these days I hope to tackle the huge painting of the atrium that I sketched out almost 10 years ago! To see more of my paintings, visit my regular website.
