Kehoe House, Savannah. Oil on Canvas. 24" x 36". 2013.

A view from the rooftops, Savannah Georgia. During my last year at SCAD I decided to paint Savannah from a perspective that is not often seen. Since the city is flat and there are not many tall buildings I was able to combine my interest in urban, architectural painting with more traditional landscape painting - depicting wide open, awe-inspiring views that reach far into the distance. While my NYC paintings are all about change and the rapid exchange of the old for the new, this view of Savannah is nearly timeless - if I were to travel back one hundred years ago I could paint nearly the same exact picture. (Assuming I could find something tall to stand on in place of the modern parking garage I was standing on for this painting.)
