Reflections cast by city lights just after it’s rained have a special draw for me. There’s an element of mystery and beauty that is captivating and I work to capture that feeling in my paintings. I never tire of painting these alluring urban landscapes. Often I will sketch the scene on the spot and work from the sketch and photos I’ve taken back in the studio. Other times, I’ll head out just after a storm with easel in tow to an early morning or evening painting session.
