Description: Built in 1772, in the middle of what was then a 200-acre farm, Clarke House was central to the Battle of Princeton, fought in 1777, between the Continental Army under the command of General George Washington and British Crown forces. The structure housed wounded soldiers from both sides.
Location:""Princeton Battleground"" - summer, Princeton, NJ Year created: 2020

Artist Statement: ""Princeton Battlefield"" was painted in the summer. I was attracted to the setting due to its historical significance and its feeling of timelessness. I set up canvas on a summer day, choosing an uphill view that took in the house and the massive trees. The first day, I sketched the scene on the large canvas. I returned 5 more times to paint the complete scene, concentrating especially on the shadows cast by the trees.
