Calvin Close finishes his LeConte Stewart painting

I've always admired this painting by LeConte Stewart titled, "Private Car" which is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Recently, it was hanging at the Museum of Fine Arts at the University of Utah. I asked the museum if I could take a few picture of the painting and to my surprise they said,"Yes"! I down loaded these photos to my laptop computer and consulted them so that the correct color hues would translate from laptop to canvas. My study of LeConte Stewart's painting is his original size, almost 2'6'' by 4'. If you would like to support the arts, place your order now before Calvin Close becomes too famous!
