Towers and spires and domes, oh my!
I’ve long been fascinated by the shapes and forms you see in the skylines of major cities -- the towers, spires, domes, bridges, and more against the sky, against the weather -- viewed from streets, from roof tops, out of windows in between. And by the bustle of city streets and alleyways, the people, the traffic, plazas, landscaping, signage, reflections in the windows, on and on.
My sketchbook is ever at the ready, one or another drawing the inspiration for a painting. Some of my paintings are based on actual places, others are imaginary or abstracted from what I see around me in what I call an expressionist style, somewhere on the spectrum between realism and abstraction. I align with the painters of “modern life,” observing and recording through my art some part of the visual experiences of city living.
