The Pavilion of Intelligence

Painting of the studio and out buildings including the outhouse, looking south. The house is also in the painting on the far left. There is actually a hog house between the studio and the small house, but artistic license only allowed for the one little red building. This building has since been taken down with a new little house built on it's foot print. This new building is named Michele's Cabin after Michele's passing in 2005. It had been built for her to live in while she was ill, although she never had the chance. It is a regular little house with all the amenities.

The shards of color technique was used in many of Merizon's paintings after he began to lose his eye site in 1985. His entire ground was painted in this abstract, geometrical pattern on top of which he would create his images. It offers so much energy and atmosphere to his landscapes especially.

Merizon dubbed his studio "The Pavilion of Intelligence".
