  1. I like these a lot. I am guessing from the one in his gallery titled “Self Portrait 2002” that he takes lots of pictures and then paints from them in the studio. Is that pretty common among landscape and figurative painters today?

    Also curious as to why you highlighted the suburban series. I really liked the San Fransico street scenes myself.

  2. The SF series is amazing, and I would have highlighted it, but then I saw the awesome signage paintings in the suburban series, so…

    I don’t know if working from photographs is the norm, but it seems fairly common. At the very least, a lot of painters seem to use photos as studies or inspiration, if not produce a painting from the one source photo.
