First Baptist Church of Cambridge

Piece description from the artist

The First Baptist Church in Cambridge is an L-shaped building, with its front facing north toward Harvard Square. The long main section of the building houses the sanctuary, and the rear section, extending a short way to the west, houses a parish hall, offices and other facilities of the church. The church is a tall single-story brick structure, with sandstone trim and decorative detailing in terracotta, and has Gothic Revival styling. It has a gabled slate roof with a clerestory section near the top of the gable, with the rear section having a cross-gable roof. The slate is mainly dirty gray-green, with some bands of red. A tower rises at the northeast corner of the building, rising to an open belfry with lancet-arch windows at the third stage. This painting does not include many details, it is almost like an architectural rendering, but it conveys the style and feeling of the church in Fall.

About Ricardo Maldonado

Cambridge, MA

Ricardo Maldonado loves painting and experimenting with color. He preferes natural outdoor subjects, as the light and colors change often with the seasons and the time of the day. Those changes, subtle or abrupt, are always challenging him. For Ricardo, painting is a passion and a discipline. Painting taught him to see things in a different way, observing every detail more carefully and more consciously, and ultimately appreciating more deeply all that surrounds him.

Ricardo's paintings are often very colorful and create a very lively atmosphere for the viewer. Sometimes strong and colorful contrasts enhance the difference between light and shadows and brings up beautiful effects not seen often.

"Bamboo Bar Code": was selected by the Cambridge Arts Council for marketing around town and on Cambridge MBTA buses announcing Cambridge Open Studios Spring 2012. Similarly, another painting titled "Where Bananas Come From" was selected for the announcement of Mass General Hospital's "Illuminations" exhibit Summer 2012.
