City of Pittsburgh Golden Triangle

Pittsburgh is characterized by the shape of the city’s downtown and majestic skyline known as the Golden Triangle which forms a triangular tract. The Allegheny & Monongahela rivers carve at both sides of the city and converge at the Point to form the Ohio River. Pittsburgh is known as the City of Steel & the City of Bridges. Here one of the cable cars with its signature red and yellow colors slowly makes its ascension on the Duquesne Incline towards Mt. Washington.

“Charles, from the moment I first saw your work, I was amazed by your talent and attention to the smallest of details.

Kennywood Amusement Park

Kennywood Amusement Park is a traditional amusement park located in West Mifflin, a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The park first opened in 1898 as a trolley park and has been a favorite summer destination for Pittsburgh families and visitors for several generations. It is one of only two amusement parks listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This painting takes us to a section of the park known as Lost Kennywood with roller-coaster thrill seekers about to make the first sheer screaming descent on the towering Phantom’s Revenge. The clouds in the painting were painted in hues of soft blues and pink to resemble fluffy cotton candy.

“Meet Me Under the Kaufmann’s Clock”

Kaufmann’s was a well-known regional department store which originated in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The department store was founded in 1871 and owned by Edgar J. Kaufmann. The Kaufmann’s Clock is an architectural masterpiece and a Pittsburgh iconic landmark and has been a popular feature of the City of Pittsburgh for over a century. The original clock which was a large four faced clock was installed in 1887 and stood on a tall post located outside of the building. With the growing expansion of the department store in the early part of the 20th century, the current clock was erected on the corner of the building’s downtown headquarters where Fifth Avenue and Smithfield Street meet. The bronze ornamental clock was designed by the Coldwell Clock Company of New York. “Meet me under the Kaufmann’s Clock” became a common phrase for those who live in and around Pittsburgh and continues to be a popular downtown meeting place.

West View Park

West View Park was a very popular amusement park for many generations of Pittsburghers and was located north of the city in the small town of West View, Pennsylvania. The amusement park was founded by T.M. Harton and made its grand opening to the public on May 26, 1906. It was one of the few trolley parks in the nation which was accessible to Pittsburghers via the #10 West View route. Streetcar tracks ran along Center Avenue and overlooked the large Dips which was a wooden trestle roller coaster and one of the park’s favorite rides. Many Pittsburgh companies and schools converged on the amusement park where they would hold their annual picnics and it was a great place to meet people. West View Park was one of those magical places that will always hold sentimental memories in the hearts of Pittsburghers.

“Lighting of the Horne’s Christmas Tree”

The lighting of the Horne’s Christmas tree at its flagship department store remains a long-held family holiday season tradition in Pittsburgh. The six story electric tree placed at the corner of the building at Penn Avenue and Stanwix Street continues to be displayed annually in the city as part of Light Up Night. As part of Pittsburgh’s nostalgic past, a trolley strolls past the illuminating light of the tree. With this painted scene, I went with cold-toned colors like you would see on a cold, blustery winter day in the city. In its heyday, trolleys were one of the major sources of transportation for generations of Pittsburghers who worked in the city or would come to the city to do holiday shopping on the weekends. Aside from the Horne’s tree, people were often drawn in by the decorative holiday window displays at Horne’s.

“Steel Rails”

Freight trains were integral to the growth of Pittsburgh’s steel industry since the beginning of the American Industrial Revolution. They are still very much a part of the fabric of western Pennsylvania as they wind through the hills and valleys. The Pennsylvania Railroad was an American Class I Railroad founded in 1846. The railroad was commonly referred to as “Pennsy” and headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The PRR was the largest railroad in the U.S. for the first half of the 20th century and at one time was the largest publicly traded corporation in the world.

“Welcome Home Daddy!” – Steelworker Tribute

Featured here is a painting I created to honor the many generations of Pittsburgh steelworkers. Their hard work, dedication & American pride contributed to the industrial might that came to define the Steel City. All of these elements came together to transform the city and region into the “Steel Capital of the World”. Here is a scene which I am sure was played out every day at one time in many households across western Pennsylvania for several generations of Pittsburgh’s steelworkers & laborers. The painting portrays a young father laboring away at the steel mill. At the end of his shift, all that was swept aside and there was nothing more he looked forward to at the end of the day then coming home into the loving arms of his kids and his family. You can have the painting personalized to include the name of the steelworker in your family in addition to their badge number and the steel mill where they worked. Featured below is a story I wrote on my blog about Pittsburgh’s steelworkers with a link to a tribute page I created honoring the steelworkers & World War II veterans of western Pennsylvania.

“Washington’s Return to Pittsburgh”

In this painting, we look at one of the most distinguished and prominent men in the history of our nation, George Washington. Before becoming our first president, George Washington spent much of his early military career here in southwestern Pennsylvania. I wanted to capture a scene of Washington on his horse of the place that bears his name overlooking the city he helped to shape and what it has become.

Washington’s first journey to western Pennsylvania was an expedition in the fall and winter of 1753-54 from Williamsburg, VA to Fort LeBoeuf (Erie). He faced the unknown of the wilderness and hostile fire on numerous occasions. One skirmish took place on the slopes of Chestnut Ridge in Fayette Co. There he clashed with French soldiers, providing the spark that ignited a worldwide “war for empire”. Locally it is known as the French & Indian War, but it ultimately involved France, Great Britain, Canada, Native American tribes, Spain, Germany, Prussia, Austria & India.

Washington recognized the strategic importance of building a fort at what is now Pittsburgh. The British created Fort Prince George in February, 1754 near the Point along the Monongahela River. No sooner had it been built when French forces arrived burning the British stockade and erecting Fort Duquesne. The French held Fort Duquesne until November, 1758 when a combined British and colonial force, including Colonel George Washington built Fort Pitt which became one of the most elaborate strongholds in North America.
