July 9, 2015 by | Escalette Permanent Collection of Art

When you walk through the halls of 633 W Palm, it is difficult to miss the captivating painting Stonehenge Series #9. The large piece fills the wall, and is a unique take on the famous British landmark with its impressionistic brushstrokes and wide array of colors.
