Layne paints in an 1850s romantic chestnut barn in backcountry Greenwich steps from his home. There are a ‘tapestry' of paintings hanging between his studio and the Great Room. Paintings are on the floor, leaning against the aged boards of the building and an antique carriage left by the former owner is suspended from the ceiling. There is also a frame shop where he makes about 80 percent of his frames. It looks like a mess to the undisciplined eye, but then you note the electric table saw and the stacks of molding he uses to make the frames piled high on shelves. There are panels of wood Arguimbau has milled from logs on his property. Just outside the double doors of the barn is a painter’s dream landscape set on a lake with lush plantings.
