This group of paintings is the result of my long love of literature. Passages from Moby Dick by Herman Melville and  The Great Gatsby  by F.cCott Fitzgerald frequently echo through my memory and I am always happy when they make themselves manifest in my paintings. “The inessential houses began to melt…” from the glorious last page of Gatsby inspired the group of houses (inessential to all but me) that I have lived in and loved.
