"GROCERY" painting featured in this June's issue of Southwest Art Magazine

I just got the June issue of Southwest Art Magazine, it features my painting of "Grocery" on page 62, and was picked for the Best of the West. It is promoting my June show at the Tirage Gallery in Pasadena.

"Grocery" is a brand new painting. The size is 24x36 inches, oil on canvas. I really liked this street corner and the old lamp post. Even the garbage can. As I was working on this painting, I had the idea of putting a shop keeper on the sidewalk. But I decided against it and went with strategically placed pigeons instead, making it a more whimsical piece for me.

Nice the shadows are really strong and overall a nice sense of light. Congrats on the coverage.

Thanks Bill. Hopefully, when the issue hits the news-stands, it'll help create more buzz for the show. Funny how SW Art picked "Grocery" out of all my paintings... and I thought I was going in a new direction.
