New painting; A highway intersection here in Ruskin Florida in late afternoon light. From a snapshot as usual, note the tilted horizon and tilted perspective. It is not projected or mechanically enlarged, but drawn and painted by hand and eye, Close and intense observation has been at the core of my work for years, it is a continual challenge, and a continuing source of deep satisfaction. The close looking, and the invention necessary to translate the observations into shapes and color, creates images that are quite distinct from any other images I know of. I also have the hope that there is meaning which somehow creeps into the finished work.
