This digital painting of the corner of North Palm Canyon Drive and Andreas Road shows numerous cars and two bicyclists enjoying the weather and amenities. The marquee to the Palm Springs Theatre, which is set back between the Chi Chi restaurant/nightclub and the Village Pharmacy, shows that the movie Young People is playing starring Shirley Temple, Jack Oakie, and Charlotte Greenwood. A movie by the name A Weekend in Palm Springs was released in 1963.

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.

My work has been featured in hardcopy magazines such as Art, Business, News (2008) and SacTown Magazine (2021).
