As I start each new digital painting, my goal is to create a work that is bright, bold and colorful.
Whether it is an iconic building, staircase, door, or just an old structure that I find interesting, my subjects are based primarily on southern Arizona (and a few New Mexico) images .
As I begin working on a piece, I am always cognizant of the fact that my final painting is not necessarily an improved version of the original subject, but rather just another way to look at it. In the years that I have been painting my southern Arizona images I still love hearing people at shows and exhibitions commenting about how much a particular painting means to them because of the memories that it conjures up.
Here I am in the Presidio District, (metaphorically) working on my Corner Market painting (with apologies to Norman Rockwell).
