The beginning of 2015 has been productive with most of the time, well all the time working on a new piece based on a street landscape of Youngstown, Ohio. This piece brings a bit of the old into the new and pushes forward with the social realism. The winter has keep me in the studio with little or no artistic endeavors happening outside. There has been a few photo shots and maybe a sketch from the car outside but no plein air for me. This piece will hopefully keep me busy for January and then progression into a few more pieces shortly after.
