LA Reds

...and now, for something completely different.

If I keep pushing myself I might get to my destination someday. This painting is one that had me out of my comfort zone from the get go.

Worked on this one the past few days using techiniques I normally don't use. It was quite fun.

Hawaii - Last of the State Series (Finally)

Google released their Street Views of Hawaii a couple of weeks ago, which means I finally get to finish the Street View State Series (on the blog) (on the website). I had substituted Washington DC for Hawaii back in April of this year. So it's nice to officially end that one.

I'd like to have a small show somewhere displaying all the paintings together if that's possible. If not, I'll probably start piecing the paintings out. Sure would like to sell the group as a whole though. ;-)

The Oceanaire

Here's a painting I finished tonight. It shows a building in Denver called The Oceanaire. I really liked the looks of the building along with the ability to bring prospective into play with this one.

Thanks for looking.

Idaho Springs - New Series?

Hello everyone, and thanks for visiting. I love doing these small knife paintings. You've heard that before. I've done the State Series, the Lower 9th Ward Series, a few from Denver that I'm not sure constitutes a series (yet), and now I've started working my way up into the mountains west of Denver.

I lived in Colorado for a decade and it still holds something dear to my heart. I've been traveling around with Street View into the old mining towns that line I-70, and have found some of the architecture that I always loved. A kind of Victorian meets heavy snow mountains meets utilitarian mining meets a longing for culture in a wilderness.

I think I'll hang in the mountains a bit and see what develops. Thanks for looking. Comments are always most welcome.
