Painted on location in cold and rain. Wearing shorts and a short sleeved shirt, because I did not plan ahead! I love Roman stuff.
Reception: Friday June 29, 5-9 PM.
Please join us for “Tents,” a collection of my paintings of fumigation tented buildings from 2017-2018. This is the first time I’ve shown such a large group of pictures from this series.

I rented an apartment on AirBNB in Rome with a partial view of Castel Sant’Angelo, an ancient structure later used as a fortress by the Popes. The view was very partial, you could really only see it by peering over the neighbor’s patio through some kind of spiky screen covered in plastic vines. To get around that for the painting, I stood on the rickety metal steps to the roof with my easel in a planter box, on top of the crusty remains of departed flowers. In gale force winds, but I didn’t blow off.
We went to Idaho for a wedding and stayed in a beautiful secluded cabin. These are the views.
Some houses in the neighborhood.
Since I grew up in a military family we moved around a lot. 3 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 2 high schools around the US and in Japan. Monterey, CA was the 2nd place and that’s why I wanted to paint the landscape here.
From my trip to Venice last year. Excavated it today in my semi-successful studio cleanup effort.
One of my favorite spots to paint on a gray day a few weeks back.
