Artist’s Statement: I have not yet exhausted the possibilities hiding in the cities of my imagination. Perspective, figures moving among the buildings, in the windows, the creation of space; it is an exciting environment. And because we all are so familiar with these scenes, these buildings, I can take liberties and we still know, more or less, where we are. And yet, they can express feelings way beyond their material reality because of the power of color and the unexpected showing up on its own. In a way they are as much poems as paintings. These are oil paintings. “Around and About” is 20 x 30 inches and the others are about 16 x 20 inches.
