Contrast of City/Country, 6 x 8, oil on panel
I did these both on evenings last week. The top painting is the vista
from my studio building's third floor. The bottom is the yard in
Loretto. I grew up here and own the house with my twin brother. The
contrast between my city studio and country home is great. The journey
of 90 miles seems worth it every time.
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.
