the above piece was painted by my stepfather as part of a series of work titled " man on the edge ". described to me as man's tendency to congregate on the shorelines of oceans & lakes; not so much about man, but very much about the water & it's mystical qualities. in this piece, dick has used his architectural skills to render development along the shore. longitudinal & latitudinal lines pinpoint this location as charleston harbor. in 2008, this painting was judged " best in show " @ the quinlan's annual member's exhibition in gainsville, ga.
