One of the unique opportunities I’ve had in my career is getting to know Christopher Forbes, of Forbes Magazine. The invitation to paint at the Forbes’ Chateau Balleroy in Normandy, France was the sort of thing I could only have dreamt about as a young man. This painting was done from the rooftop of the 17th century Chateau, looking over the forecourts and the studio of Albert de Balleroy, a very gifted 19th century French painter known for his hunting scenes.
