Jona's Garden, 20 x 30, oil on canvas

Occasionally I'm commissioned to paint a backyard. This painting required several trips to Point Breeze to determine the exact timing of the sweet evening light. It is titled Jona's Garden. Notice BB the cat in the shadows to the lower left.

Wires to Heaven, 16 x 20, oil on canvas

There was a time when wires were edited out from my cityscapes. I now include them because they show our time here in a historical context. These wires appear to extend right up to heaven – a direct line. Everything will be wireless soon and I'll miss all the linear clutter.

Garbage Cans, 24 x 30, oil on heavy linen

It is always fun to check out what people put out for trash, especially on bulk pickup day. I've done my share of dumpster diving. This alley is at the end of Smallman Street. I did another painting here in the middle of winter so this warmer version was a nice contrast.
