The Field Trip
12 x 12
Oil on Raymar Panel
This is the continuation of this painting depicting a group of school boys on a field trip to the National Gallery of Art. They were all taking notes and hopefully talking about the artwork...though I think they noticed the girls from a nearby school who were also on a field trip.
The painting in the background is called "The Old Musician" by Edouard Manet. One thing I really love about painting these pictures from the National Gallery of Art is the education I get researching the paintings in the background. I like to find out as much as I can about the master's artwork and then try to find a commonality between the two pieces. In this one the people in the background are mimicked by the boys on the field trip.
