The title piece, Urban Playground was from a photograph I’d taken one hot day in May last year, and Discovery Green. The kids were all having such a great time cooling themselves in the splash pad, not the least concerned about what was happening on social media. The photo wasn’t anything extraordinary, and I hesitated to actually turn it into a painting. But every once in a while, you can surprise yourself! This painting turned out so much better than I thought; and from that blah photo in my signature palette knife style, a new series was born!
