French Mansard Roof
Several years ago I was struck by the fact that I produce strikingly different bodies of work. Having been a draftsman, I drew very technically, making detail oriented technical drawings. After years of apprenticeships, I created oil paintings in the American Impressionist tradition, with loose painterly brush work. Neither one seemed to have a common ground and neither seemed to come from the same artist. Intrinsic too who I am, was also the use of computers.
With this realization I started looking for an intersection between the three. The result was the series of car and architectural paintings that I am currently working on, tightly drawn in the technical drawing tradition, composed using photography and computers, and loosely painted in the tradition of the American Impressionist School. The two worlds have been joined into one in this series of paintings.ch
