I worked more with the vanishing point in this for a sense of depth. I like the sense of tranquility it conveys because of the blue and green, but the contrasting touches of red and orange keep the work from being visually boring. A nice touch I like to use whenever possible is a small, contrasting bit of a single color to draw the eye to an out of the way spot so that the eye keeps moving around the picture. In this instance I used the bright yellow of the streetlight against the blue sky and green trees. The black woman in the black dress adds a contrast in tones with the otherwise bright scene.
Corpus Christi Bayfront
24 x 36
This is one of my favorite works because of its simple yet effective composition. It is essentially three fields of color: cool blue and green separated by a light, warm yellow to contrast with both. The center foreground is dominated by four buildings forming a pyramidal mass and which lead the eye to the vanishing point at street's end right.

"Mirador" is the Spanish name for one of these gazebo-like structures situated along the Corpus Christi Bayfront. Each contains a plaque commemorating some aspect of the city's history.
Corner of Chaparral and William #2
18 x 24
This is of the same corner as in "Corner of Chaparral and William" above (you can see the bright red and green building low center right) and in "Chaparral Street #1", but taken from a couple of hundred feet farther south on Chaparral. In the distance can be seen Shoreline Plaza 1, which is also known as "the towers" and which can be seen in several of my works on this page.
