A Stairway Home

15 cm x 20 cm (6" x 8") - Oil on Board

This painting was inspired by the work of Lionel and Roger Penrose. They created the famous self-contained staircase on which you can go up forever in one direction or down in the other. This illusion was accomplished by an ingeneous arrangement of the steps. The goal of this work was to use color harmonies to develop a simple abstract design to create the illusion.
