FenceArt. My painting was chosen to represent Arts at a number of locations throughout the City. This one is at the entrance to the Main Library. Other sites sprinkled around town. Printed on a heavy-duty vinyl, I hope to get one to keep when the run of 1 year is over.

When I see a scene or subject that I think would make a good painting, my feeling is not so much that I hope to recreate the look of it in a painting. A photo would probably do a better job. And the view seen best simply by being there. My feeling is that the scene before me could make a good basis or starting point for one of my paintings. Meaning the subject filtered through the lens of my imagination and ability.
In painting New England scenes; cityscapes and seascapes, I like to orchestrate a complex harmony of line, color, shape, pattern, volume, light & dark, two & three dimensional spatial relationships - the elements of art - to achieve a satisfying aesthetic result. Working in layers, I can re-paint any area in four or five different colors. Or four or five shades of the same color, or varying intensities.
It's not too much to work weeks or even months, developing and improving a painting.
I've been drawing and painting for more decades than I volunteer to admit but the challenge of this process never gets old.
