Bricks, Mortar, Time Portfolio:
paintings of time-honored places
that comfortably mix grace and style.

This collection of John Burk paintings depicts the grace and style of architecture created well, made more compelling by a patina of time.  Hampton Mansion, home of the Ridgely family in Towson, Maryland, and The Breakers, Vanderbilt's 'summer cottage' in Newport are two of the grander examples of what this portfolio is about.  Madison's formal garden gate at Montpelior is another.  Even my deck made the cut. If you are alone and in a quiet space, you can almost imagine the presence of generations who have lived in or walked by these places.  I would like this body of work to respect that, whether the subject is a mansion, a former slave quarters, or simply a garden gate.
