This image is inspired by an outdoor shopping center in Glendale, California known as Americana at Brand. At first glance, you may think this is a scene from Paris or somewhere in Europe, but this is Los Angeles. I grew up in Glendale and was pleasantly surprised to see this place emerge. It is a shopper's and pedestrian paradise. This place has a bit of Paris in it with the boutique shops, park-like surroundings, and even an Eiffel tower look-a-like.
This place becomes more enchanting at night with all the lights - and so I had to capture in with paint.
This painting is fairly large...It's definitely a show-stopper for your living room any other room in your home or office where you want something extra special. Enjoy the magic of this painting. I really had a lot of fun bringing this one to life.
Most of us are captivated by beautiful imagery in our daily life: a vibrant sunset, a beautiful piece of architecture, a garden. And yet, with our busy lives, we don’t always have time to enjoy what we already have in our surroundings. I am an artist living in San Diego, painting for over 20 years. My daytime profession is in healthcare, but my artful spirit calls me to create on a regular basis. I began experimenting with oil paints as a young teen. In college I continued my endeavors with various media, and accomplished the equivalent of a Minor of Art in college. After college I pursued a graduate degree in psychology, yet still I continued painting. I have apprenticed under Tetrachromat Artist Concetta Antico in San Diego. Through her instruction, I became the oil painter and artist I am today. In spite of my day job in healthcare, I am regularly compelled to paint and share meaningful images with others in my own colorful and playful style.
