Peter lives in Marina Del Rey, California. He started painting with watercolors after receiving his B.A. degree from the University of Florida.
The subject matter of his paintings is often an everyday event - what he sees as a meaningful moment in time. He is interested in the emotion, mood, and feelings engendered by the subject. He finds his inspiration in articles, pictures, and advertisements that appear in newpapers and magazines.
He strives for a realistic depiction of the subjects, structuring the compositions and applying washes of color to create an emotional connection to the subject - to feel the mood of the moment - rather than an awareness of a technique, style or method of painting.
A note about print production… Peter's watercolors are reproduced in limited runs, usually numbering in ten or fewer prints. Notecards are also produced for each picture. The originals are scanned and digitally produced by Marco Fine Arts (MFA), located in Hawthorne, California, USA. The company’s technologies are used to produce prints with the depth, detail and feel of the original works. The process involves the production of numerous proofs and the selection of the candidate which best represents the original work. In the final step, MFA creates prints on fine art paper.
