Phone Booth

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. This was one of those rainy days when I was walking around Greenwich Village in the rain, looking for interesting shots of wet pavement and umbrellas.  A rainy cityscape. 8 x 10 oil on 1/2 inch board, with slots in the back for easy hanging.  Go here to bid.  You can also see my other paintings on eBay or...

34th Street, New York City

34th Street, New York City

This one is 6 x 6, oil on 1/2 inch board with slots in the back for easy hanging.  Click here to bid.  Go here to see all my paintings on eBay, and check out my Daily Paintworks gallery,...

“Soho Street”

“Soho Street”

  This is one of those paintings that pleased me so much that I just couldn’t stand to part with it for the longest time.  I just loved that little bird in the middle of the street. Anyway, I think I can stand to let it go at last, especially as I now have another four or five, painted much more recently, that I can’t bring myself to part with. It’s strangely hard to give some of them up! This is 8 x 8 oil on 1/2 inch...

It’s 8 x 8, oil on 1/2 inch thick fiberboard with slots in the back for easy hanging.  Click here to bid and go here to see my other...

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...

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...
