I am thinking of a general sense on how I perceive the subjects in my paintings. I can only put a stream of experiences to describe the image: the song by Frank Sinatra, a barely remembered poem about Chicago..something about big shoulders, pop culture thoughts like prohibition and gansters, great pizza, baseball, lots of guys that look like me (baseball cap, bearded, slight beer belly) Guinness, el trains, bridges, biting cold etc.. Does this make sense?
Eddie Alvarez here, how long have you been making these? I've been making night paintings (among other stuff) myself since about 2003 when I was at UM. Apparently we have alot in common, as I am also from Jersey, born in Newark. And I even also use Blogger (http://artpost.blogspot.com). Anyhow, these look good. I'll be showing some night paintings at the World Arts Building on 2214 N. Miami Ave on Sept.9 if you wanna check it out. I think we should meet, maybe we can put a show or something together.
take it easy, hope to hear from you, eddie
