My Home Town Celebrates its 125th Anniversary

This year the town of Carnegie, Pennsylvania turns 125 years old. This weekend is the big celebration on Main Street. This weekend is the big celebration. I don’t travel too far to paint and sketch, but find new perspectives to share on the most familiar things around me. I have many paintings and photos of […]

Memorial Day Parade, from the “My Home Town” Series

The good old traditional parade on the good old traditional Main Street, in my home town of Carnegie, PA. I am not a big fan of parades but my mother loved them, so every year until the year before she died I set us up on Main Street regardless of the weather and we cheered […]

Signs of Spring, Pear Trees on Main Street

A familiar scene will change almost imperceptibly over time, and sometimes also suddenly and irrevocably. In April, when the ornamental pears bloom, Main Street seems more colorful than usual with big clouds of soft white pear trees all along the street. Even though I painted this in 2003, it carries the memories of Carnegie’s Main […]

Signs of Spring, Pear Trees on Main Street

Spring may have actually finally arrived and Carnegie’s Main Street is once again awash in white blossoms. I felt so bad to see the clouds of white blossoms bending down under snow cover, but now the weather is warmer, the sun is bright, and the pear tree blossoms survived two late snows. It’s time to […]

#30paintingsin30days Day 24: Main Street September Morning

I love quiet little street scenes, and living in a small town they aren’t difficult to find. There were people around aside from me—some of the shadows on the sidewalk are from cars—so it was just a momentary empty sidewalk. But I remember paying more attention to the two flags slowly waving back and forth […]

Some Photos From Today

Do I choose to drop off my car for service on a day when I’m sure to find interesting things to photograph? Or are they always there to be found? Really I don’t like to drop my car off for service any day but finding interesting things on the walk back home eases the financial […]
