Miracle Mile, Los Angeles, c.1940

This is Los Angeles showing lots of action at the west end of “Miracle Mile,” a mile or so of the best shopping in Southern California. The iconic May Company Building on the left is now a part of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). The building on the right, with the Cresta Blanca wine billboard atop, is now the Petersen Automobile Museum. Upon leaving this location New York rapper Biggie Smalls was shot on March 9, 1997.

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.
