    This abstract is about my hometown (Garden City, KS) which has, over recent years, boomed with commerce and a diverse population. The layout represents the town on a map, with the focal point being the intersection where major highways intersect. The neutral colors are that of our landscape, agricultural and industrial, and the bright colors are that of newness and welcome change.

    GC Boomtown was part of our local Banner Art Project, my favorite, where artists paint on canvas banners that are displayed along Main Street and then auctioned off.

    Once Upon A Time

    Love the dark background that sets off the warm light on the figure. The figures pose is wonderful, with the face half hidden and the bangs on the forehead catching the light. The wicker chairs capture an era and the child reading there seems ageless

    Nice painting


    Love this one Brian... Very original.


    My story goes on for over 50 years. That being said, I paint for passion and nothing more. I love what I do.
