This is my street. I love my street. The houses were built in the 50's and the entire street has the same kind of tree in front- all 60 plus years old. This painting is a simplified version of what I love about walking up the sidewalk, the cool shadows, and the protection a good tree provides.
I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
