My Boston row house inspired painting “After Midnight at Number 3” is finished. I think of it as a narrative painting because it suggests that a story (however mysterious it may be) is unfolding at the moment that is captured in time.
As an artist, it’s fun for me to find new ways of showing the city through my eyes. I have taken a lot of photographs on long walks around town, and around 2009 I began to experiment with painting them.
I would never go so far as to say I find winter in Boston fun. Bracing, yes. Interesting, maybe. Challenging, sometimes. But fun? No.
Winter here has a big upside for me, though…
