As I travel across the country — whether through cities or out in the wilderness — I am becoming increasingly aware of the remnants of America’s industrial architecture and have been inspired by the rugged beauty of their forms.  After all, at the root of this country’s progress over the last two centuries, were the factories built to produce needed goods – from the finest linens to firearms — for a rapidly growing nation.

I have just completed the first paintings in this series. As you can see, the technique I use is a far cry from the fine detailed pen and watercolors of my signature house portraits, Iconic American Architecture series and more.

This first pair of original paintings evolved from various industrial images I viewed in my travels, combined with my imagination. I decided to start small and used these to experiment with technique and materials. 

These paintings are mix of acrylic paint and other mediums to give the paintings a more textured industrial flavor. I have to admit, it has been fun to throw aside my fine pens and brushes and roll up my sleeves for a change, just as one might in the industrial factories in years long past.
