some new-found inspirations...CityScapes

Sometimes this week, or perhaps this weekend, I'm going to start working on a painting or two. Of course, this depends on what sorts of fun things the house and kids suggest for me to do - you know, the usual laundry, cleaning, errand-running, etc...

If you have browsed through my paintings you may notice that much of my work revolves around trees and forests. However, I also have a love for interesting cityscapes!

I've decided that my next series will be based on and inspired by photos, memories, and paintings that I have seen of various skylines and cityscapes that I have seen. I'm even considering putting down the acrylics and - GASP! - using watercolor for a change heh heh...

Here are a few pictures that others have produced that have inspired me and gotten my brain churning and conjuring ideas:

There are so many amazing places - I'm going to enjoy this project! :)


  1. Beautiful photos - these are going to give you a great starting point!
