10th Ward Yellow, 32 x 42, oil on canvas
Pittsburgh has a particular style of architecture. Some areas have skinny row houses that are packed together on steep hillsides. This is the case with the 10th Ward of the city. You can sense the claustrophobic environment in this alleyway painting I did last week. To think I once drove through these places only to get somewhere else, never really seeing just how interesting they were.
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.
