A smaller painting, 10" square on a masonite panel. I am glazing layers of color and it works well on this surface. I plan to do more.The surface is hard to photograph since it has greater depth in the painting.

I struggled with this painting and thought I would have to give it up. I went back to it and now I like it.

Latest look


definitely not the final arrangement but I like to see them together as I go along.

Now I am thinking- 5 across and 5 down- 25 instead of 20? 100" x100" is that more symmetrical than 80" x100" 20 20"x20"?

Places I Know

Titles are funny- I have a hard time with them. But as I continue on this group of paintings I am realizing that the series is about place. whether it is Mexico, Italy or Colorado, each painting is about something I have seen and has been imprinted on my memory. The series is a catalog of sorts, hence my desire to display it as a group. It is more than a list and close to a snapshot; a reminder of my experience of a moment and the mysteries of a particular place. No people, no nature, just the man-made buildings and streets.



I am not sure this name will survive but it is the best way to keep track of it in my files.

all together- 15. Actually there is one more but I need a bigger ladder to make another row.

contemporary architecture this time-I love the way it fit into the streetscape of indigenous buildings.
