This oil on canvas print painting is from a photograph I took about eight years ago.It is 17″ wide by 11″ high.This painting is one of a series of paintings of Missouri roads and highways.
This painting is about observing and recording a moment in time that will be constantly changing. Automobiles will change, businesses will change,and people in automobiles and trucks will need gasoline and food.
Where were the cars and trucks on the right side of the painting going?

This is a view from the roof patio of the rental  home my wife and I and friends stayed at for two weeks in Guanajuato, Mexico. I used several photoshop filters and painted over this digital photo that I took. I observed many building shapes,in Guanajuato, which was the focus of this photo.

Here are additional images based on photographs I took inside of the Museum of Modern Art during a trip to New york City, with my wife in May of 2010.
Many of my photos were blurred ,which I found visually interesting.Some ,I think, look like abstract paintings.
