Cityscape from Terminal Way

Latest painting from the south side. Found these wonderful hand rails made from bent rebar and a great site to paint the city. I'll probably head over to that spot again..

City View from 10th Street bridge

I'm very happy with this painting, it took longer than I had planned (two hours). After about an hour a policewoan tried to get me to get off my perch near the river,,, but decided not to pursue my extraction. She ended it by seeing that I was painting and said that , "Well you aren't drinking and you don't look like the type of person that would jump in the water or do something stupid., uhh careful" 
I smiled as she rode off on her bicycle. Life is good and I and still inspired, maybe even more so. More inspired because of feeling a sense of my mortality - wanting to accomplish more in my life.

Three Films - filmed all over the world




Very cool edits

Pittsburgh from the 10th Street bridge

Decided to make the time to sit and paint a view of Pittsburgh I drew almost a year ago. Drove to the South Side of Pittsburgh and parked near the bridge. As I strolled toward the west I came across a set of steps that led to the Monongahela river and there was a place to sit with this view of the city.

Watercolors - I tried to go opaque, but in order to work fast I had to make some compromises. My goal was to complete the painting within 40 minutes.
