I've traveled the world and lived in some incredible places. When finally I settled down in the 21st Century, I started painting those images. I've been painting full time for 15 years, have owned a gallery, and traveled to hundreds of juried art events throughout the country. I am blessed to have my work on walls in homes and offices all over the world, and am represented in the permanent collections of the Cities of Raleigh (NC) and Charleston (SC).
My work is a combination of acrylic, graphite and sometimes mixed media, including photos and maps. All images are my own, and occasionally I use reproductions of my original paintings in mixed media work. All the work has structural elements, so even the abstract paintings aren't very far from the actual skyline paintings.
When I started painting full time, I remembered the adage to writers, "write what you know." So I painted what I knew, and that was cities. I've painted almost 100 of them now. But I am inspired by everything I see, so I have a large body of abstracted landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, and even musical instruments. In fact, I have painted (on) 4 actual guitars. So, no idea you might have for a commission to fit your home is too far afield for me (except pets and people!) The mixed media cities, in fact, are some of my favorites to create, using your favorite landmarks to inspire them.
These are original pieces, acrylicon canvas, unless other media indicated.
30 x 40 acrylic & graphite on canvas, with deep cradle and painted sides. This piece suggests a skyline in a calm gray and sunset palette, heavily textured. Sides are painted. Ready to hang, no frame necessary. Shipping is included (within US)
24 x 30 original painting, acrylic and graphite on canvas. Suggesting a skyline at dusk or just before daylight, there is a prayer and a blessing in this thoughtful piece. Sides are painted. Ready to hang. Shipping included (within US)
Reproductions of my original paintings, printed on canvas and stretched (just like paintings), with painted sides, ready to hang
All 100 city paintings can be reproduced up to their original size. MOST of them were 24 x 30, so this is the optimum size. Abstracts can be up to 36 x 48, so ask about those if you want a larger size. They take 10 days to two weeks from your order and are ready to accentuate any home or office wall.
Any of my original paintings can be ordered in this size. The same details apply as above.
