Quiet Ascent

"Quiet Ascent"
11x14 oil on linen
When the boys at the academy graduate, they line up at these steps before walking up to enter the graduation ceremony. This is consequently the last glimpse of the campus they take in before graduating.
Quiet Ascent was completed at the 2006 annual Princeton Academy Paintout, and was purchased by the Princeton Academy for their private collection during the silent auction held at the end of the paintout.
