Mind Storm

Over the last several weeks here in the Bay Area there has been stormy skies clearing away to some truly amazing color and light. I've been wanting to actually get out there and try painting some storm clouds. However with the holidays here, there has been no time. So I decided to paint a few thumbnails and small studies from memory and imagination in gouache.

Rainy Day at Stowe Lake

This was last Saturdays outing with two friends. A very, very cold and rainy morning at Stowe Lake. Since it was raining we took refuge under a replica of a Chinese Pavilion a few yards from the man made waterfall.

Oh Snap, Way Back

Way back to the early 90's. In my late teens to early 20's I was really into graffiti art and worked in this piece for a school project painted at the Belmont pit. The piece is about censorship and at the time certain types rap music was considered very controversial. To my surprise a student of mine mentioned I was in this book called Graffiti LA. Here it is, it sure brings back some memories.
