Street Umbrellas

Street Umbrellas

  I did an interview on the Daily Paintworks blog in which I confessed that this painting is pretty much all about me avoiding having to paint faces.   Still, it was a fun one to do–I don’t think I’ve ever tackled this many figures at once.  It’s all just lines and colors, right?

On McAllister

On McAllister

I was in Golden Gate Park one day last spring, and I wandered out of the park and into the neighborhood to take some pictures. I used to drive through this neighborhood all the time and I always fantasized about living there–so here’s my fantasy corner coffee shop. Some of these images are resizing themselves in an odd way.  I’m working on that. Meanwhile, you can get a better look at Daily...

Rue Saint-Paul, Old Montreal

Rue Saint-Paul, Old Montreal

I could not stop photographing this narrow old street in Montreal last summer.  Most evenings I would pace around, waiting for the lights to come up.  I could probably just work on Rue Saint-Paul for a year and not run out of material.  It’s a touristy area now–all restaurants and shops and art galleries–but it really is a lovely old European-style piece of Montreal in spite of the souvenirs and overpriced drinks. This is 8...

Girl with Umbrella

Girl with Umbrella

  I took this photo on a rainy day in the meatpacking district, which is of course not at all about packing meat anymore, and is instead about selling art.  As always–it starts to rain, and I step outside with my camera and start looking for some umbrellas to paint. A bright blue umbrella is a gift–I just followed her around until I got the scene I wanted. 8 x 10 oil on 1/2 inch fiberboard, with slots in the back for easy...

Phone Booth

  You almost never see anybody using a phone booth in New York.  Come to think of it, you almost never see a phone booth in New York.
