This work is based around the Telluride festival my wife and I went to a few years ago. I love people watching, so I took that one more step by taking photographs serendipitously of the crowds. By using a zoom at considerable distance, I was able capture my fellow concert goers in their natural habitat.
I enjoy rendering these moments on canvas. The work invites the viewer to eavesdrop a little on various moments and interactions. These paintings are a series of candid American portraits.
