In 1987, I completed a commissioned piece entitled,  Evening at Edgmont Now thirty-two years later, I’ve completed a second commissioned piece of that same iconic building entitled, Daybreak at Edgmont.  This time, the viewer essentially becomes the fourth goose, taking in a bird’s eye view of the scene.
If you look closely, you can see The Big Dipper hanging just above the treeline as the bright tail of a shooting star streaks across the morning sky.


Evening At Edgemont Santoleri

My inspiration for both pieces occurred in my childhood, during my many trips up and down the pike with my father. He was building a house out in East Goshen in 1963, and I would accompany him to the site, each time passing by the Edgmont Inn. Other than the Esso station, there were very few buildings on the road between routes 252 and 352 in those days, and I was keenly aware of that unique and beautiful building. Both the quality of the stonework and the style of the architecture make it timeless.
