The Hershey Lodge Project

The commission for the Hershey Lodge, through the Lynden Gallery, has been completed and the paintings delivered. The work is in the lobby area at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center, in Hershey, Pennsylvania. I worked on the drawings for the paintings from the lot adjacent to the Hershey Gardens. I met lots of nice people there in that field overlooking the park. The drawings are large, 30x44". I propped them on my Toyota truck gate as I worked, thus the truck is really a traveling easel. I tried to capture the noise of the coasters and screams of the riders that could be heard as I worked.
