My paintings have always been involved with people in urban spaces, but in different ways. I wander the city sometimes, searching out the scene or event that will capture my imagination, with the intent to put it into my own visual language. When I find something, I try to capture it with a sketch, or by using my camera as a sketchbook, and making a note to return another day with my pochade box or easel. Most, but not all, of my paintings are of New York City and its incredible diversity. I have been painting New York City since I arrived from Ohio 50 years ago; I never run out of inspiration.
