When I think of southern California, I think of a palm tree or a pier along a coastal city. Having moved to California from the Midwest, my artistic inspirations were drawn to the bright colors of the sunsets along the coast. My paintings tend to showcase many vibrant colors, highlighting the sky against the silhouette of a pier or a tree line. Each pier is unique, and defined by its structural materials and features. In these works you can depict where the piers are based on their outline.
