I may be sketching for a few days. This is one view of my alternate studio. It is nice to get back to the basics: pencil and paper.
I never realized that the underside of a shipping palette could be so colorful.
On my way to lunch, I passed a desiccated section of a parking lot. Paint was dried and chipped, especially on the yellow tapered curb that echoes the slope of the handicapped ramp and borders the red, rubberized mat. There is a pole that juts out and reaches the plane at which the camera snapped […]
No time to paint today. Here is a sketch of a person who is not feeling very well at all.
I began this study with Kandinsky’s work in mind. I wanted to create a visual relationship between crisp geometric shapes, circles and lines and some kind of formlessness. I didn’t get very far before I ran out of ideas. The organizing principle of this piece (or disorganizing principle) is the disconnection between line that could […]
Today’s watercolor study is a preliminary sketch of the projection of ideas through an atmosphere of confusion. That was my intention. I need to execute many more sketches to perfect the visual expression of this motif.
I have visited one newly refurbished parking lot several times in the past few weeks. The newly painted lines, concrete surface and rubberized pedestrian safety mats offer me, as a street photographer, the opportunity to design interesting photographs. The proximity and arrangement of these parking lot constituents, as I framed them, became geometric visual elements […]
Can anyone guess the movie I’m trying to watch here?

Rarely have I seen such a fine hydrant shadow as the one below. It was cast on a parking lot access road. The blue reflector happened to be in just the […]
