American Bedroom - Atlanta - The influence of painting

I thought to do a trip to Atlanta since the flights were low and my sister was going for the gift show so i could stay with her.  Off to Atlanta I went.

 Paintings have been a huge inspiration for me for this project. I love the classic but i am also really inspired by contemporary figurative painting. I build a fresh folder of these paintings for each trip. On this particular trip I shared the paintings with my subjects and asked them to identify the ones they liked. We used them as a starting point.
