Gallery photo taken at the Denver Art Museum by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

You may have noticed that I like to take photographs of art museum interiors. This photo comes from the Denver Art Museum. The inspiration for the title is the fact that the design and color of the space that showcases the art are so welcoming.

Art museums are often busy and full of the sound of voices and footsteps echoing off the walls and wooden floors in the spacious galleries. But because it was snowing outside, the museum was quiet and I had this floor almost to myself. I was looking for serenity, warmth and color on this particular morning and I found it.

For those who might be curious, the painting on the wall directly opposite my camera is called “Childhood Idyll” by Bourguereau. Click here to see a better view of the painting.
