6 x 8 inch oil on gessoed art board. Click here to bid.  Go here to see more paintings on eBay or on Etsy.

And now for something completely different.  I’ve always taken pictures of bars and hotel lobbies–I just love all those warm, glowy lights.  I finally decided to give one a try.  This is the lobby of the Algonquin Hotel, one of my favorite places to visit in New York.  Dorothy Parker lived there, E.B. White often stayed there, and of course the writers of the Algonquin Roundtable hung out there.  I never go to New York without stopping in for a glass of Champagne. 

I’m saving up to actually take a painting trip to New York–a complicated endeavor because it means being there long enough to paint and let the paintings dry, having some outdoors space like a terrace where paintings can air out, and, of course, lugging supplies around.  Not sure if I’ll be able to pull it off, but I’m trying for next July.  So–you know–buy a painting, help send a painter to Manhattan.  That’s the deal.

  1. Amy,
    I really like some of the recent things you’ve done. I checked out your Etsy shop, and your onion and garlic and the more muted eggplant one really grabbed me. If you ever do anything larger (but not that much larger), please let me know. I’d be interested in a grouping of 4, I think. When we redo our kitchen, I want something old world/Tuscan, and I think a grouping of 4 of your paintings would look great. Of course, I would buy the paintings if they were available before our redo. I also understand you are an artist and paint what you want or what strikes you that day. But if you ever go a little larger and do several that would look good with warmer, Tuscan colors (an added plus would be things that went along like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, garlic, basil, rosemary, etc.) please let me know.

  2. Well, after leaving that comment, I realized I should have looked at some of your things that have already sold. You’ve already done some things I love – Autumn Squash and Onion and Garlic 1 were just what I’m talking about. I guess I’ll have to check back more often.
