|"The Big Puddle" by Alfred Phillips|
"I love my puddle paintings," he says. "Some people can do flowers. I just happen to be able to do puddles.
"I like being in the city, and I like the architecture and the things that happen with light when it hits buildings and puddles," Phillips adds. "So I'll go out after a rain, when the sun is shining and the water sparkling, and I'll take photos."
Phillips will include paintings based on these images in "Dwellings," a group show opening May 4 at Artist's Eye Fine Art Gallery in Dania Beach. .... Find the rest of my story in Sun-Sentinel's Lifestyle section.
