These two wonderful buildings in Hamtramck are no longer standing. I am happy when I can leave a visual record of an area of Detroit that is constantly changing.

Hi Stephen,

I found your blog via William Wrays blog. Glad I did, another gold mine of inpseration. Like William your work shows how good compositional skills really open up the everyday and mundane as sutiable subjects for great art!
I was wondering if you paint on the spot or take photos and work in studio? Also if you work into a toned background or cover the whole panel in panel alla prima style??

I love this one. I used to live in Cleveland until recently, and I visit your blog all the time to sort of relive the light quality of the midwest. Your paintings are masterful.

A very beautiful and eerie image. I love the gaping black holes created by the posts on the front porch. The house in the background is also great, they both remind me of tombstones.

This one has a moody, hopperesque feel to it.
