Walkabout: The Urban Paintings of Michael Ward (warning, image heavy!)

8:06 pm in art,painting dustin hostetler

“Some artists paint portraits, others paint flowers; I paint the cities that we live in, but never really notice. The paintings are based on photographs taken over the last 30 years. In painting these, I attempt to uncover the grace in the everyday, what Alan Watts called “the mystery of the ordinary.” The places are mostly in southern California, though they could be anywhere. Take a look. You’ve seen these places before, even it you’ve never been there.” ~ Michael Ward
