My Chronicle as an Artist

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary—Pablo Picasso

3: Chicago...

My life in Chicago and art school were inextricably bound for 7 years.  Each had an immeasurable influence on my work.  My map drawings, like those shown in the previous post, developed from colored pencil & conte materials into oil paintings.  I thought of these as internal travel logs -- with a bird's eye viewpoint.   The natural landscape of my East coast past combined with the architectural footprints of city buildings that I now saw looking out the window from the elevated trains that I rode daily.
