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...

Trinidad, Cuba

Trinidad, Cuba

Trinidad is the most astonishingly beautiful town. Most people who go to Cuba only think about going to Havana, but Trinidad is IT. It looks just like this, for miles and miles: Caribbean-colored houses, Spanish tile roofs, dusty roads, donkeys, and people out everywhere chatting. (OK, I left out the people in this painting.) Anyway, this is just a little 5 x 7 postcard-sized painting that posted on eBay as part of a charity auction to benefit...

Gatsby’s Bar, New York

Gatsby’s Bar, New York

I’ve painted this bar before. I painted it again for some reason–honestly, I can’t remember exactly why. Someone asked me to. Anyway, here it is, in its crazy red glory. I’m auctioning it off for charity on eBay along with a bunch of other paintings of New York, and one painting of a famous New Yorker. You can read more about why I’m auctioning off paintings for charity...

Chrysler Building in the Distance

Chrysler Building in the Distance

I’m auctioning a bunch of paintings on eBay and donating 100% of the sales to charity. You can go to eBay to see all the paintings. A few days ago I posted another New York painting and said that it was my favorite, but I changed my mind: I think this one is my favorite. I’ll miss it. It’s one of the strange things about painting, as opposed to writing books: Artists sell their paintings and never see them again, but writers...

East Village at Sunset

East Village at Sunset

Auction ends Dec 19! Click here to visit eBay & see all the paintings I’m auctioning for charity. How long has it been since I’ve posted a painting? Forever, right? Well, I’m always painting–I just don’t necessarily do anything with them. They tend to stack up. That’s the difficulty with an artistic pursuit like oil painting. What do you do with them once they’re finished? If I were a professional...

Phone Break in Bryant Park

Phone Break in Bryant Park

  Without really meaning to, I’ve done a whole series of New Yorkers with their phones. This guy was reading something on his phone after lunch in Bryant Park, behind the New York Public Library. I love it that his shoelaces matched his phone case! See this and other paintings at my DailyPaintworks...
