Traffic State Street

  Traffic State Street is part of a series of urban landscapes.  Capturing the mood is more important in these city scenes.  The details are far less important and can add up to be too much for the human eye to take in.

Wabash Bridge

  Wabash Bridge is part of a series to do with urban landscapes.  I moved to Chicago about 10 years ago with the idea of painting the city.  It appeared to be a never ending resource for paintings.

Perpendicular Shadow

  Perpendicular Shadow is part of a series to do with people coming and going in the city.  I started doing paintings for this series about 8 years ago.  I remember being struck by the drama of light clothed figures stepping out of dark shadows.

Light at the End

  Light at the End is part of a series of urban landscapes.  Even though I grew up in the country, the city scenes have always intrigued me more.  In fact, I don't believe I've ever done a nature landscape in 20 years.  The random effects of light coming through a stack of buildings strikes a much more interesting design.

Forty-Sixth Street

  Forty-Sixth Street in NYC is typical of midtown hustle and bustle.  Many things are coming at you at once including signage and billboards.  An overload on the senses.

Marquee


  Marquee is part of a series of urban landscapes.  In this series, I prefer images that don't involve historic buildings or monuments.  Much to do about nothing, raises more questions to the viewer.

Near South Side


  Near South Side is part of a series to do with urban landscapes.  The contrast of snow and steel always interests me.  That combination can easily be found in Chicago.  Also, I've always admired the George Bellows snow scenes.
