Flatrock, 34 x 50, oil on canvas
About a year ago my identical twin brother Don took an interesting winter photo. I liked it so much that it inspired the above painting for his office. He lives in San Francisco, which is where I'm painting this week. I normally don't work from photos that were taken by others, but Don and I have a similar sense of landscape aesthetic so it seems natural to collaborate. The image was taken north of Lock Haven in Clinton County. We are currently working together on images of the bay area. Here is an interesting online interview about Don and his design process.
Full time artist living in Pittsburgh, PA. I've been a gravedigger, chicken catcher, landscaper, graphic designer, museum art installer, college instructor, and now, finally, I'm painting everyday, which is what I've been trying to do all along.
