SUNY Broome Art and Design Professor Hall Groat II was recently commissioned by Billy Vassiliadis, CEO and Principal of R&R Partners in Las Vega,s to create two original oil paintings.

The first of the two paintings is a nocturnal urban scene depicting Regents Street and the second is an impression of the iconic London skyline, including Big Ben and Parliament, along with a section of the London Eye. Both measure 20 by 24 inches and are painted in oil on stretched canvas.

The commissioned pieces were completed during the professor’s mid-semester break, and were completed in roughly three weeks. During this period, he also taught History of Architecture through Open SUNY, which offered plenty of inspiration.
