These GOOD Editions are derived from Jeff Jackson's acrylic on panels. They are images of Italian architecture. The artist remarked, "I found the Italian Architecture so unusual, that at first it was difficult to record what was before me. The only way I was able to sketch was if I looked at my subject matter and drew without looking at my page. I would feel my way through my drawings. What I discovered when I analyzed my sketches was that I had developed a kind of short-hand notation of buildings and details. I later deciphered sketches to create final paintings."
