About This Image

There was just something about the architecture of Five Hundred Boylston Street in the heart of Boston. It spoke to me. I loved the towering graphic lines and all intersecting lines of the paving stones in the courtyard at the base of that Boston skyscraper.

As I stood there on busy Boylston Street watching people pass by, inspiration struck. I loved the contrast of the graphic lines and the human forms. I spent a good deal of time standing there trying different vantage points on that towering architecture and the people of Boston going about their day. I wasn’t entirely sure what I was looking for, but I knew when everything lined up, I’d have something compelling.

And when those stars aligned, I had the Boylston Street print you see here. I love the symmetry of this scene, the curving lines from my fisheye lens combined with the graphic quality of the pavement and the skyscraper. There’s a feeling to me that these pedestrians are trapped in the amber at the base of Five Hundred Boylston Street. They feel stuck in the geometry that surrounds them. In some surreal sense it reminds me of the lines of an Escher print, the impossible lines of a mathematician on the streets of Boston.

Have you stood at the foot of Five Hundred Boylston Street? I am going to guess it didn’t look like this to you, but I certainly hope you can also appreciate the surreal quality of this Boston scene! I would love it if you chose to take a moment to share what attracts you to this particular Boston print!

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
