Foggy Marsh: Afternoon | 8x8 | $175

I once read of an art teacher who suggested that a student paint the same subject 100 times.  Thinking I might learn something from a scaled back version of this experiment, I painted a simple landscape with small 8x8 canvases--but only five times, each with a different color palette and slight variation in technique.

Inspired by the black-and-white images of deteriorating 19th century tenement housing in a documentary on urban history, I added sparse areas of color to make a street scene come to life.  To reflect its gritty feeling, I laid on paint with a palette knife and scrubbed it with a dry sponge.  (This is a miniature version of the larger piece, "Renewal".)

I took the photo on which this painting was based 20 years ago on a trip to the island of St. Barthelemy.  The stark white of sun-drenched buildings is dramatic against the deep blue Caribbean sky.

Sipping the last drops of cappuccino at an airport café, I noticed the artistic swirl of coffee remnants in the empty paper cup and captured it for painting.

This painting of a weed sprouting from cracks in a concrete wall reminds us that once man removes himself, nature reclaims its territory.
