Balboa Park • San Diego
Nineteen of these paintings were donated to the Balboa Park Conservancy and hang in their offices.* The Explorer Pass canvas was painted by request and given to the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership. The success of this project provided me with modest notoriety and a modicum of respect as an oil painter.
*In 2022 the conservancy merged with other groups and is now called Forever Balboa Park. The paintings still reside on the same walls and have been seen by hundreds of tour groups.
The initial group of 14 paintings that were donated. Undertaken in an inspired frenzy that stretched for months, these are my most noteworthy pictures.
By recreating images from 100 years earlier, these paintings capture the park's grounds during the Panama-California Exposition.
