"Something I see while I'm out strikes me and I take a photo. A few notes on composition and color help fix the image in my mind. Later, when I start a painting I get out the photo and the notes and compare them to my memory. The image, my memory, the photo, my notes--these become overlapping layers in the painting. The picture ages and time adds another layer. And perhaps viewers will add their own perspective to the piece. I live and work in Portland, ME, and many of my paintings are of the city, but ideas for pictures come from wherever I happen to be at the time: Chicago, New Orleans, San Juan, Antigua, Tarragona, and Barcelona have all been subjects for my work.

Thanks for looking". -Chris
