Over 40 years ago, I did a series of oil paintings of the downtown area. Urban renewal was happening, and older buildings were coming down and new ones going up. The variety of colors, shapes and architectural forms was very visually interesting. I had a show of the paintings in 1980, and since then they have been stored in my studio. I recently donated 12 of them to the city, and they are now part of the Boise Visual Chronicle Art Collection. They are currently on display in the lobby of City Hall.
