Piece description from the artist
Dripped or poured method of painting featuring the St. Louis city arch and skyline at night. Apart from the blue background painted with acrylic paint, the rest of this painting was created using a drip technique where the paint is literally poured onto the canvas to create the city scene.
The result of this drip painting technique is a lively and energetic take on the downtown St. Louis cityscape with a variety of colors ranging from grays, browns and blues to bright yellows oranges and whites.

I'm a fan of both experimentation and variety. Not surprisingly, my paintings often vary in theme from conceptual and meaningful, to colorful and expressive. I enjoy the discovery part of the creative process and how to communicate and connect with viewers through a visual medium. Often times, when I feel that I've accomplished a form of communication in a particular fashion, I end up challenging myself to find a new way to express an idea or emotion. It's this challenge that keeps me motivated and why I know my passion for artistic expression will always fuel my desire to create.
