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.
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.
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.
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.
