Riga, LATVIA – Several weeks ago I began a two canvas painting. It is the largest of my paintings to date. Each canvas measures 80 x 120 cm or 31.2 x 47.5 inches. Together this painting is about 2 1/2 feet high and 8 feet wide.
Using the great canal row houses of Amsterdam as my inspiration, my goal was to capture warmth, light and life. During and after each session I took snapshots of the process and progress. As I view these photos I can recall how at various points I started to do one thing, didn’t like it, so I changed directions, colors, shapes and shades. I have put these photos into a small film. I hope you enjoy.
