The pool at the Shadow Mountain Club was huge, and designed in the shape of a figure eight. It also featured two giant water slides. This image works well as a wide panoramic. There are people both in and around the pool. Due to the fact that Palm Desert was a new community, there are few houses in the background.

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.
