The paintings in this gallery were hung in my August 2007 show “Cityscapes and Escapes” at Trinity Gallery, Pittsburgh, PA.

“Taking a Break” sold shortly before the show officially opened. The owner of Cromie Machine commissioned the second painting “Cromie Machine,” which has a very different feel. The first painting was created mid-winter, while the second in the height of summer.

The study “Carnegie Street” was completed early in the preparations for this series; it sold prior to completing the series.
