Azaleas in Bloom

Remembering the light and color of the azaleas in Houston

Memory Garden, oil on canvas, 24 x 24 inches

I spent the summer working on a series of paintings based on old photos and memories of a garden in Houston.  Way back in the early 90’s, I created a large body of work in pastel of this stunning garden on the Azalea Trail. The new paintings were a way for me to reconnect to Houston and to look back to the start of my career.  I wanted to revisit the garden in my current painting style.  All of this was in anticipation of solo show of new work at a gallery near Houston.  Unfortunately, the show was cancelled at the last minute so these paintings won’t make their debut in Texas. I was disappointed that the show fell through as this was going to be my homecoming, so to speak. It would have been the first time in many years that I would show my work in my hometown.

Follow along with me on this journey.
