Tribune Tower

"Tribune Tower"
12" x 12" encaustic on panel

When I combine my photographs with wax, I work toward finding a balance between photographic realism and dream-like impressionism. It has become my personal challenge to unmask the hidden landscapes lurking throughout the city.


  1. I love the way this building juts sharply into the sky, and the tree softens everything.

    1. The reason for the colorful tree and flowers adjacent to the concrete buildings is to soften everything, glad it worked. I have to admit, having viewed this painting digitally for two days I now see some things I need to fix (the building on the left, the Wrigley building). Hopefully I can be done tomorrow.

  2. I think dong thsi one with encaustic needs lot of expoertise and no wonder you are loaded with that! I love this balance of realism and impresionism in your style!
