This painting of a unique pawn shop just outside the gates of the Shaw Airforce Base in South Carolina is one in a series of pictures I did of what I like to call, Local Landmarks. I was struck by the folksy charm of this building and it reminded me of something from the American Southwest or Mexico. I made this painting with oil on a smooth panel, which I made in my workshop. For these pictures I prefer a very smooth surface so that I can capture the fine detail as accurately as possible. This picture is unframed and measures 19"x24"x1". All materials are acid-free, lightfast and permanent.
Based in: Columbia, South Carolina, USA
I was born in Kansas City, Missouri, USA in 1948. From a very early age I began to draw and paint and now at 74 I am still doing it. After serving in the Army I came back to the US and enrolled in the Kansas City Art Institute, where I earned a degree in painting and printmaking. In 1975 I moved to New York City, where I had a painting studio in a loft in the garment district. While In New York, I produced a number of large abstract oil paintings while I studied and did research at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum. In 1980 I moved to Southern California, where I had studios in Ventura and Ojai. During this time I painted a number of landscapes and narrative paintings. In 1983 I moved to Japan, where I lived for 2 years and studied traditional Japanese painting and scroll making. I had a number of solo exhibitions while living there. In 1985 I returned to Southern California and continued to paint until I moved to South Carolina in 2002. I now maintain a studio here in Columbia, South Carolina, where I paint every day.
