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.
