This work by Edward Hopper, born on this day in 1882, reportedly inspired the house in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller Psycho. The painting and the house in the film in turn inspired artist Cornelia Parker’s current rooftop installation at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The funeral painting for the Blue Iris project. I’ve included some of the different composition I was leaning towards. I wanted something that felt quiet in the time of grieving and still very intimate. Ironically cutting closer to the characters created the opposite effect and creating a very wide shot set the tone better.
I haven’t uploaded anything in so long sorry everyone! I’ll drop things in whenever I can find the time!
