Grauman’s Chinese Theatre as imagined in the late 40s. A 1947 Buick was added to the picture, along with people, to make this a more interesting street scene. The original was produced in a 50x32 format, making for a very grand living room sofa piece.

I digitize old black and white photos and create color compositions; digital paintings. It's more than simply colorizing. I strive to create art; a visual gateway to the past, but in a new and different way. This all started in 2006 in Palm Springs where I had an art gallery. Street scenes from black and white postcards were the most popular and have won the most awards. Two examples are Chi Chi and Cubana and Radio City - Hollywoodland. I love doing people too, as you can tell.
