River Bank

   



  River Bank is part of the series that has to do with the female figure reading.  This figure is reading near a river bank which provides many geometric shapes to work with.  I've followed many Hopper works which plays on horizontals,verticals, and accents with a few diagonal.

Buckets

  Buckets is part of a series of works that focuses on the urban landscape.  Rainy city scapes are prevalent in impressionist paintings.  I'm trying to do something different with these types of scenes.

Recliners in Sand

  Recliners in Sand is part of a series that depicts the female figure reading.  I've rendered this concept in various scenarios.  The subway, park benches, and in nature.  The beach scenes are more challenging as I try to apply something different to the piece rather than just a literal interpretation.

Pulling Cart

  Pulling Cart is part of a series to do with the figure in conditions of hard labor.  I choose scenarios of coal mining, steel mills, and other jobs which can show the figure in an extreme physical struggle.  Usually, the scenes have dark background which add much drama to the painting.

Harbor

Fresh Air

  Fresh Air is part of a series of urban landscapes.  I try to eliminate as much detail as possible and inject energy into one, small area.  This location was near Mid-Town and Tenth.  The title suggests the mood and warmth of the color scheme.

Gridiron

Bandshell Steps

  Bandshell Steps is a larger work (24 x 30) based on a smaller work done about a year ago.  The figures are talking during a lunch break while sitting on the Bandshell Steps in Chicago's Millennium Park.  Although one wouldn't be able to identify it by the background colors.  The intention is to focus on the figures and let the emotions of the color tint the mood of their conversation.

Ripples

  Ripples is part of a series focusing on beach scenes.  I like to keep the figures as simple as possible in order for them to blend with the ocean and sand.  These paintings teeter between landscape and figural.
