Paris Market Stalls

Paris Market Stalls

  This is a narrow little street in Paris lined with market stalls and restaurants.  I can’t tell you exactly where it is, because I didn’t take the picture!  My mother did.  I helped her restore thousands of lost photographs from a damaged CD, and as payment, I told her I was going to borrow a couple of my favorites and paint from them! So.  Thanks, Mom! This one is 8 x 8 oil on a 1/2 inch masonite panel with slots on the...

Lexington Avenue

Can you tell that I'm in a New York state of mind?  There's nothing really special about this particular stretch of Lexington Avenue around 60th, but every time I walk past it I end up finding something to paint.

New York City Skyline

Ah, to be in back in New York, sitting on the rooftop of that lovely old building in the East Village, with my paints and a nice drink and nothing to do but sit and watch the colors change and listen to the laughter and the conversation from the other rooftops all around me. Ahhhh! So, here it is:  my little view of Manhattan, from the East Village.  6 x 12, oil on 3/8 inch cavnas-textured fiberboard with slots in the back for...

Taxi Crossing Broadway

I love, love, love this 6 x 12 size. The panels are kind of hard to find, so I actually have a backlog of 5 or 6 paintings I'd like to do at this size, as soon as I can get more. Meanwhile–here's one of them.  New York City, of course. This is down by NYU on a rainy afternoon. 6 x 12, oil on 3/8 inch cavnas-textured fiberboard with slots in the back for hanging.  Click here to bid, and go here to see more...

The Modern-Day Mad Men?

The Modern-Day Mad Men?

I painted this during a workshop I took with Karin Jurick in New York. I wanted to learn how to do cityscapes that were more about the people and less about the buildings.  So I stood in this spot where I liked the shadows and the light and the background, and I waited for the right person to walk by.  After a few minutes this guy strolled by in his nice suit. Perfect!  He was rounding the corner onto Madison Avenue, so here he is:  My...

Five Cherries

This is the last painting in my little Mexico series, and to be honest, I'm looking at it and thinking, "Really?  Did I paint that in Mexico? There were cherries?"  I guess I can't be sure.  All I know is that this one was stacked up with the rest of my Mexico paintings, so here it goes.  Hey, it's colorful, it's vibrant–and you want a cherry in that pina colada, right? Good enough. ...

Chayote Squash and Habanero

And the food portion of Mexico Week continues with chayote squash and habanero pepper.  I bought these entirely for their looks–I don't think I even ate that habanero!  The purple background, by the way, is construction paper.  I bought a stack of it in a little shop in town and used it all week for still life backgrounds.  Whatever works! This is 5 x 7, oil on canvas panel.  Click here to bid, and go...

Poblano Pepper and Tomato

The rest of Mexico Week is, of course, about the food.  Starting with the peppers.  Mmmmm….there was a little vegetable stand down the street in La Penita, near the tortilla factory….it was not hard to eat well in Mexico! 6 x 6 oil on canvas panel.  Click here to bid, and go here to see...
