Mr Johnson’s Fleet

16 x 20 inch plein-air oil on canvas, painted in Venice Beach. The artwork is protected with Windsor Conserv-art Varnish, and ready to hang in a black and gold floater frame. Mr. Johnson ran a side-hustle hauling scrap. His extended family lived in a double lot in Venice. Who knows how their lives were affected by the inevitable gentrification?

Please hang away from sunlight, dust lightly with swiffer or feather duster.


It is folly to attempt to record a world in flux; but the challenge of open-air painting compels me to capture that evasive effect. The process is as valuable as the end result – concentrated work that heightens the present with a sense of urgency. To see the world in the unique way of an artist is in itself endlessly entertaining; and engaging with it in paint, even more so.
