See Jacksonville: Past and Present

Exhibit Dates
October 12, 2023 - Jan 5, 2023
See Jacksonville: Past and Present, is my love of the places in Jacksonville, some gone, and some still here and they represent places. Here you will see places I visited with my Dad, and places I visit with my son. Some places, I just appreciated because of the architecture and they impacts they made to many people around me. My style of abstraction comes through with the blind contour line work and the quick, loose watercolor style. This style then connects my love of tiny art, by including a 1” x 1”watercolor painting, of each painting, in each large painting. Use the magnifying glass and find all of them. Look at the other tiny paintings and the other places of Jacksonville that has made an impact to me and you. See Jacksonville, Old, New, Past, Present and see them the way I see them.
