Pecos Street, Denver

I seem to be drawn (no pun inteneded) to railroad crossing scenes without trains. I'm sure a good psychoanalyst could tell me why. I think it's the starkness. The general dirtiness. Who knows... :)

Derbigny Street

Here's a 20" x 24" I just finished. Trying to take the simplified nature of the small knife paintings to a larger level. I think it's close.

Not much to say about this one. All palette knife. Thick paint in places. Lots of fall color.

Thanks for looking. Detail shots included.

Here's one I've done for a small works show at the Abend Gallery in Denver that's coming up in early December. This is a little house near the tracks on Inca Street.

The 101

Here's one I've worked on for a few days. Of course, now that I've signed it and took all the pictures of it, there are things I see that I'll probably change. But...it's close.

Thanks for looking. Adding some detail, before and after, pics.

Below is a detail of a little extra work. Just suggesting the buildings in the distance, helping to solidify the location. Which, by the way, is near the Los Angeles City College.

N. Robertson St. - NOLA Series - #3

Here's my latest in the New Orleans Lower 9th Ward series I'm doing using Google Street View scenes as references. I think I'm closer to the look and feel I'm after with this one. How many times do I have to say "simplify" to myself before I can actually get it?
