CITYSCAPE


I was a teenager when I completed my first painting of Cuenca.  Everytime I go to that beautiful city I spend hours in Ronda de Julián Romero.  I have seen it and photographed it from every possible angle, at all hours of the day.  I can trace the different ways the city council have paved the street, how many steps were added and how many eliminated.

There have been other cities, other streets, other arches.  I could never sell my picture of the view of Toledo: I can walk its streets and name them, even though some disappeared a long time ago.

Venice captivated me as it has done to so many before me: water makes so much sense when it reflects the beauty above it!
