George’s Postcard Note: Years ago I thought about painting the Capital Hotel’s lobby, and again after its 1990’s renovation.A few years ago I painted postcards of the exterior, and more recently, its staff made me comfortable as I spent the afternoon painting the inside. The grand space of this historic hotel centers around the atrium with its stained glass canopy. Sitting under the canopy, I looked up to the balcony and allowed my eyes to follow the staircase in the background for the depth I wanted to capture.
