Dan Griggs' Art
Here's some of my artwork. I started painting at about age 11. I worked mainly in watercolor. I like the feel of working the paint quickly. There's an urgency with the medium that no other one has. I've done a lot more than this but haven't had time to photograph all of them yet. Most of these are from many years ago so don't judge my ability on them. The most recent on this page is "On The Right Track" done in 2012.

1st watercolor, ever!
I've always been fascinated by buildings and their relation to their surroundings.

This is a scene from the neighborhood I grew up in. Bishop High was just to the right of these apartments.

Tropic Wall
Winslow Homer was one of my favorite artists. Sort of a tribute
to his work.

Hour of Madness
This is the Fine Arts Theatre in L.A. The marquis is the same as the title. It was the name of my comedy radio show in college.

American Dream
Used to drive by this "divorce" sign, thought it ironic next to the house, the symbol of the american dream.
