My Washington D.C., a sneak peak into the book!

I finally, finally finished painting the White House interior! Just showing off and celebrating…..!!!!
This is a double page in the book….so much work and research!  It is 12 miniature paintings really, and they are as accurate as I can possibly make them!
Left to right: 3rd floor Lincoln Bedroom and Lincoln Sitting Room
2nd floor: State Dining Room, Red Room, Blue Room, Green Room, East Room
1st floor: Oval Office, (moved over from the West Wing), Map Room, Diplomatic Reception Room, China Room,  and Vermeil Room (it houses a collection of gold plated pieces)

Next painting to finish is another double page….the exterior of the Capitol
building!

A sneak peek of my upcoming book, My Washington D.C. Believe it or not, this is a closeup!
