These recent paintings are of places in and around Tucson that I love and visit often.
I’m very interested in the desert landscape with its man made structures, marks, and stories left behind. I’m equally interested in the space and atmosphere that surrounds these places and the moods they evoke. When out on location, I’ll make lots of sketches and notes of certain passages and colors that are interesting and unexpected. When back in the studio, I work from memory and attempt to capture the essence of these places.
