I was inspired by my aerial view from the overhead tram of this woman engaged in conversation. This gestural painting of a woman walking on the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and talking on her cell phone is rendered in my unique, Pixel Impressionism brush strokes. The active brush work suggests the movement of the figure and immediacy of the moment. This small painting is created on an archival quality canvas-wrapped panel and is varnished with a satin finish to protect it from UV, dust and smoke. It is ready to frame in a standard-sized frame.
Born in New Orleans in 1965, my work reflects the culmination of 30 years of painting the figure. I have had many solo shows in the U.S. and Mexico, have sold hundreds of paintings to collectors around the world, and my Impressionistic figure paintings have been included in juried shows at Otis College, Los Angeles, Ventura College, Orange County Center For Contemporary Art, Long Beach Arts, TAG Santa Monica and Gallery 825 in Los Angeles. My latest series, Overview, was selected as an LA Times Calendar pick, won awards at juried exhibits at the California Open and Long Beach Arts. An interview with me about this series was featured on both My work has been featured in the LA Times, Daily News, The Huffington Post and on CNN and KTLA in Los Angeles.
