Claiming a City

A long time ago, a move to an industrial city came as a shock. The only way I could make peace with the place was to walk for hours and document with 1000s of photographs. A long series of large works on paper, smaller and larger canvases resulted. The largest canvases were 4 x 5 feet. The images were often broody and gritty (I know and understand gritty), but there was also a searching and longing for 'home'...many of the paintings were of houses.
