Los Angeles in Blues, a watercolor view from Griffith ParkĀ 


The sky is often thick in Los Angeles. The sea, mountains, noise, and light create an ever-present glow that fills the lower atmosphere. 

Because of the city’s vast footprint, long sweeping views of urban and suburban development can be found from the islands of parkland that dot the seemingly endless sprawl. 

From Griffith Park, the downtown vistas of the city of angels take on similar characteristics to mountain views. Skyscrapers give the impression of jagged peaks as rows of houses disappear on the horizon. 

Los Angeles in Blues is a large watercolor painting, 58 x 44. Light blue washes give the impression of the city’s ethereal atmosphere, capturing the spiritual essence that is Los Angeles. The painting is framed in light gray and retails at $6,500.00.

Los Angeles in Blue

LOS ANgeles copy

The city air is often thick, even when you climb above it. The layers of atmosphere do funny things in the different light. Early in the day, when the sun is at the right angle, blue light gets lost in the thickness of ocean and smog, shading the layers of the city in cobalt hues. Here is a view of Los Angeles from Griffith Park, the city skyline barely visible in the distance.

Los Angeles is a large painting, about 44 x 56 inches. Only three shades of blue were used to paint the piece.

Cool Off At the Glacier

2012 (1 of 82)

The summer heat has come but I’m taking respite under the cool colors of Glacier. Painted after snow-machining to the foot of a glacier (over the frozen lake), this painting always reminds me of the cold and stark beauty of Alaska. It was the beginning of spring and snow still covered much of the landscape. Cool grays and slate blacks mingled with the white, marking mountains and trees. The glacier seemed to glow in it’s blueness, the turquoise color reminiscent of tropical beaches and balmy skies. It is my reverse reminder when the summer grows.

Glacier is acrylic on canvas, 36 by 48 inches.
