New York New York:
This is a painting of downtown Vegas Casino New York New York I love painting my local city! This is now hanging in the New Lake Las Vegas Club house in Henderson.
Along Rainbow Tree Lane:
I loved painting these unusual colorful trees only found in tropical areas.
A place I have always wished to visit and stay a while, so peaceful..this won best of show in a show in Santa Paula.
Most memorable art commission - what was the piece about, who commissioned the art, what was the experience like.
If I had to choose, I would probably say an ocean scene I completed just last year for a young couple here in Las Vegas whom had re-located from Southern California which was close to my heart as I too re-located from The Southern California area as well.
They were missing the beaches and ask me to create a 30 x 60 ocean scape depicting the feeling and sounds of their beloved California beaches...all so familiar to me... They absolutely loved the final piece and it meant so much to me that I was able to bring back that little memory to their lives. It was a very easy piece to work with as the family was so wonderful and supportive.
How you work with your clients - a short description of how you develop concepts and ideas, and collaborate with your clients.
If I accept a commission, I want to make sure that the client and I have a clear expectation of what the final result will look like, the time frame, the cost, etc. I will take the inspiration piece and sketch it out for my client to approve. If the painting will prove to be especially complex, I will mock up a few proofs so that the client can see some options of what their painting will look like when I am done.
If a proof is selected, I will begin the larger commission piece. I will usually work for days on end until I get the piece just right. I will submit images along the way to the client so they can share in the process, once completed and approved I will then protect it with a conservators varnish and ship it off to its new home.
What/who inspires you?
Although I rarely run out of ideas as far as subjects, I will travel around and take pictures of beautiful areas provided by nature,I love going to the mountains or beaches where I get my best inspiration.
