Downtown - LK Design Studio.

Happy holidays everyone. This is a painting of my favorite storefronts downtown, LK Design Studio on a sunny and cold afternoon.

I have followed your work for at least two or more years and watch it evolve from a rather conventional style to something much more exciting. I really like the high key pallet and dashes of color. I not quite sure what you mean when you say you paint from the bottom up. Do you mean that is physically the way you apply the paint? Or metaphorically from the ground up. I like to paint back to front or top to bottom.

Hi Glenn,
Thanks for stopping in! When I wrote that header I was thinking about the way that we perceive and experience visual information as being different than what we know, especially when it comes to color. Ideas such as the atmosphere or light key changing colors of things. I'm really glad that you have enjoy where my painting is moving!
