Crystal City-Winter

"'Crystal City- Winter' has a long history. It began in 1987 or 88 with a sketch on graph paper during an extremely boring meeting at the office and was key to keeping me awake. That evening I drew a refined copy of it using colored pencils (no computers then). When I showed my mom the piece, she asked me to paint it for her. I did a small painting and it hung in her condo until her passing. By that time I had moved back to Pittsburgh and somehow the painting vanished. I vowed to paint it again and I did, only much larger this time. I still had the original sketch, so repainting it was easy and I had the computer to assist me.

The painting was inspired by the many sparkling, mirrored buildings being constructed at the time. They sparkled in the sun by day and reflected the city lights by night and their reflections could be seen in the coastal waters, creating quite a picture."
