About This Image

My first walk across the Brooklyn Bridge was a beautiful one. I don’t think I could have asked for a more picturesque afternoon. The golden sunlight, the great skies, it was the type of afternoon an artist might custom order.

And I guess it was also a great afternoon for skateboarding? As I stood at the edge of the boardwalk gazing across to Brooklyn, I wanted to capture people going about their day on the bridge. What I wasn’t expecting was a small crew of skateboarders that passed me.

I heard them quite before I saw them. You can imagine the repetitive sound of the wheels crossing over the boards of the bridge while they were skateboarding towards me. Rather than turning, I framed my shot and waited. I guess I wanted to be surprised, and as the first skateboarder entered the scene, I captured this moment – a fun action shot from a colorful afternoon on the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge.

Sometimes my favorite images are almost entirely unplanned. When I stood there, the image was incomplete. The bridge and people on it were interesting enough, but it was missing that one final ingredient. I didn’t know what it was, but as the skateboarders appeared, they filled an empty slot. This guy gave life to the scene in a most vibrant way.

The finished print is a real dose of Americana from the landmark Brooklyn Bridge to the very sport of skateboarding. It just screams afternoon in America.

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.
