High Knees

  High Knees is part of a series to do with athletes and sporting events.  When I first glanced at this painting thoughts of Leroy Neiman came to mind.  I remember looking at his sports themed works, not by choice but rather, they were everywhere you looked if you watched sports.  They became so ingrained in your mind.

Gang Tackle

  Gang Tackle is part of a series to do with sports or athletic events.  I particularly like the sport of football because of the human struggle element.  The figures are caught in violent struggles with legs and arms moving in all directions.

Comfortable Park Bench

  Comfortable Park Bench is part of a series that focuses on the female figure reading.  Everyday common scenes are the images I like to do the most.  These urban genre paintings work the best when they are executed on a small scale.

Slugger

  Slugger is part of a series to do with sports and athletic events.  In this painting, the face and uniform are oblivious to details.  My focus is to capture the movement of the swing and not the individual.

Long Counter

  Long Counter is part of a series to do with food and drink.  The viewpoint gives a feeling as if you were just walking into the diner.  The long counter then leads you to the back where the figures are already situated.  This gives the impression that some sort of confrontation is about to happen.

Hidden Guests

  Hidden Guests is part of a series to do with food and drink.  I focus on the service people providing the goods in this series.  Their poses and gestures are more telling than any of the figures.  As in this case, the guest are hidden but the waiter's expression is evident.

Newspaper on Curb

  Newspaper on Curb is part of a series to do with the female figure reading.  I use other artist for inspiration in many of these works.  When it comes to color, I admire the works of Elmore Bischoff, a figurative artist from the Bay Area.  The paintings where realistic, but very dreamlike at the same time.

Winter Steam

  Winter Steam is part of a series of urban landscapes and the figures that inhabit them.  Usually, in these works, the figures are hustling and bustling across the street.  The steam which escapes below the street is an organic that contrast the strict architecture.

Sweeping Water

  Sweeping Water is part of a series that has to do with food and drink.  This waiter is sweeping away extra water from the street in order to give his area a good presentation.  I admire these people for all the work they do because I once did this.

Mercury

  Mercury is part of a series to do with sports and athletics.  The paintings in this series are more about the figures in motion and their physical struggle.  That aspect is more compelling to me rather than glorifying a particular athlete or event.

Nestled in Corner

  Nestled in Corner is part of a series to do with the female figure reading.  I sometimes take my own photographs here in Chicago of figures reading.  But sometimes I borrow photos which I think are interesting, as in this case. However, I do add my own color scheme to these black and white photographs to add more of my vision.

Taking Time

  Taking Time is part of a series that has to do with the female figure reading.  The figure is in a very calm and serene setting.  I contrast the calmness of the figure with a very energetic background.

Shade

  Shade is part of a series depicting the female figure reading.  The open road in the background gives you the feeling that someone else is involved in the scene.  But that someone else isn't visible at all.  Hopefully, it adds some mystery the painting.

Scramble

  Scramble is part of a series that has to do with sports and athletic events.  Football, or American Football, offers scenarios of human struggle more readily than other sports.  The uniforms and helmets help downplay the factual information of the person.

Old Rocking Chair

  Old Rocking Chair is part of a series to do with the female figure reading.  I found this old photograph from around the early 1900's.  I add my own color and try to use it in a non-descript type of way.

Daytime

  Daytime is part of a series to do with sports or athletic events.  These sport type works have to do with mood rather than specific players or teams.  In this painting, the atmosphere of a daytime baseball game is the main focus.

Coffee Shop

  Coffee Shop is part of a series to do with food and drink.  I eliminate many details in my paintings so as to keep it very simple.  As in this case, I want the viewer to add their own details and plot lines.  The concept of not revealing too much factual information is a Hopper characteristic.

Section of Tables

  Section of Tables is part of a series to do with food and beverage.  In most of these works, I focus on the servers, bartenders, and cooks. Earlier in my career, I supplemented my income by serving food in various restaurants. I guess I can identify with these characters.

Coastline

  Coastline belongs to a series that depicts the female figure reading.  In this painting, the figure and backdrop mesh together and become one.  I've studied many of Richard Diebenkorn's figurative work. If you look closely, you can see a resemblance.
