The Birth of a Series "Under Construction"
During the late fall of 2014 I was finding it nearly impossible to find the time and inspiration to paint large format landscapes. When there was a spare moment between work and family my son Robert insisted on "helping" a little too much.
In order to satisfy the urge to create and bang out a few Christmas gifts I set up a single styro pare. Robert then began "helping" by pushing the pare around with his construction vehicles. The scale, The color, the story all worked together. Throw in a caution cone, the motif from a spoon brought back from Sweden by my great grandmother and voila! "Under Construction". The story of a family constantly building and attempting the herculean task of balancing the to dos/must dos/ and want to dos.
