These photographs are documents that have provided source materials for the paintings on this website. Over 30,000 images have been taken of sites throughout Europe and the United States. I use them as "memory prompts", images that supply the cascade of memories forming the character of the paintings. The selected images in these galleries , catalogued by Country, are a few of the many images that stand out as being strongly representative of the character of place, time, and mood that prompt the path of the paintings creation.
