cityscapes - ACRYLIC on canvas


each painting is created by layering buildings, windows, streets, trees, & emotions together with color, form, & line.

i use bold colors & stark outlines to turn the everyday into the whimsical.

nearly all buildings & landmarks that i paint in the artwork are based on buildings that exist in real life. 
for me, spending the extended time to layer in new aspects on the old is a means of meditating & of putting my thoughts somewhere outside of my head & to give them a shape. it is also a way of showing others how i see my surroundings. in focusing on the beauty, even in the mundane, i seek to inspire others to seek out & create beauty, too.
