About Laurel Street:
Laurel Street is one of a continuing series of landscape paintings of locations in and around San Diego, California. This is an ongoing series. To date, there are fourteen paintings, 24" by 24", acrylic on canvas of locations identified by the name of the street that is the subject location of the painting. These are the artist's intent to reveal the forms, and colors and light of a specific time of day gathered, as would be, through a momentary glance amid the distraction of sound and movement so often experienced while traveling streets.
