Fine Art by
An American Scenic Painter
I grew up in California in the 70’s, before the big boom of construction. We still had acres of strawberry fields and orange groves around our homes. Muscle cars were new on the car lots. Mix that with my childhood memories of my dad and brothers working in his shop, repairing and painting everything on wheels. We still had dirt roads, phone booths, and service stations. I want to capture that time in my painting, a time when industry was just meeting up to the edges of agriculture and the urbane. I enjoy surreal color and fantastic huge skies, storms and deep shadows. I’m inspired by such great painters as Thomas Hart Benton, Edmund Brucker, and Edward Hopper.
