Selected Past Works
About "Urban Mirage": When visiting my hometown of Seattle, I walk around
the Seward Park peninsula in the south end of this long
city situated along Lake Washington. Many years ago,
I suddenly noticed that above the home-dotted hills across the
lake I could see that downtown Seattle was now rising on the horizon.
It felt a bit like magic that suddenly a number of tall buildings
had been built in my absence and were now reaching for the sky and
I knew that my hometown had changed radically. The blue in this painting
represents the lake and the sky. The squarish shapes represent
the buildings and the bridges that lead to the new metropolitan
area that the "small town" of my youth had become.
