In 2015, construction began right outside my 13th floor studio window in Midtown Manhattan on what would become a forty story building. Overcoming a sense of loss and the desire to flee, I made a decision to stay and record the process from the foundation up. I realized then how fast construction sites change, with new shapes, patterns, light effects and human dramas daily. It set my work on a new path. Now I head out on site regularly with my travel easel to make paintings of mountainous architectural landscapes where each time I come back the structures have changed!
