Florida

This portfolio contains the Pomano paintings.  I lived in Pompano Beach, Florida for two years.  I created two paintings during that time and the rest came upon reflection.  It wasn’t until 1993 that I began to make a commitment to painting – I started working in series of twelve, always buying a dozen canvases at a time then feverishly attacking them until the ideas came to fruition.

I have visited Ft. Lauderdale several times since returning to Syracuse.  One day a shark swam very close to the beach and ended up as a motif in the paintings.  And that is not an atomic bomb in the sky.  It’s the Goodyear blimp.  The hanger for it was right next door to the Pompano mall so I saw it in the sky pretty much everyday (they must have more than one, right?)

All paintings are framed in maple.  Prices are marked.
