Plein Air– Peterloon

12" x 16", Oil on Canvas

Painted on Thursday at the Emery home "Peterloon" in Indian Hill, Ohio. One of the great family estates in the Cincinnati area, Peterloon was built in 1928 to rival the country homes of europe. Currently operated by the Peterloon Foundation the house and grounds are available for events and meetings.

I discovered  personal connection to the home: my grandfather was an electrical contractor to the Emerys, when the home was built. This view is of the west wing and main section of the home from a sunken gravel terrace.
