Woman in Black, Reading

Woman in Black, Reading

This is part of a series of paintings of people reading that I’m auctioning off to benefit ProPublica. Go here for details. So this was a painting that surprised me. I was working from a photograph of a woman in a pink sundress, with the bright, happy, green Washington Square Park in the background. I often paint on black gesso, so there was a stage early on when all you could see was her figure against the black background–I...

Reading on the Fire Escape

Reading on the Fire Escape

This is another painting I’m auctioning off to benefit ProPublica–go here for details. The only reason I ever keep a painting is because I’m so pleased with it that I’m sure I’ll never paint another one as good. I kept this one for years for that reason. I just loved it. Even when I thought I was pretty sure I could paint it all over again and be just as satisfied, I wasn’t sure–so I did. I painted...

Reading on the Lawn, Bryant Park

Reading on the Lawn, Bryant Park

It’s time for another round of paintings for a good cause! I’m auctioning off eight paintings this week to benefit ProPublica. Go here for details. Every time I go to Bryant Park (which is right behind the glorious public library in New York City, if you’ve never been) I just walk around taking pictures of people reading–some on their cell phones, some on computers, and some even on real books. It’s a beautiful...

Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach is not in Manhattan. It’s in Los Angeles. It’s a charming little town along the coast that nobody can afford to live in. But you can go there, and walk along the water, and take pictures! That part’s free. Anyway, this is just a little 5 x 7 postcard-sized painting that posted on eBay as part of a charity auction to benefit Planned Parenthood. They get 100%–I’m doing it all for them. Nice to raise some funds...

Nice to raise some funds for a good cause! Go take a look–there are 11 in all. I plan to keep doing this once a month, so stay...

Manhattan Taxis

Manhattan Taxis

Ah, New York City in the springtime, when everything’s candy-colored, even the taxis. This is a little 5 x 7 postcard-sized painting that posted on eBay as part of a charity auction to benefit Planned Parenthood. They get 100%–I’m doing it all for them. Nice to raise some funds for a good cause! Go take a look–there are 11 in all. I plan to keep doing this once a month, so stay tuned! Here’s a larger...
