Reading on the Lawn, Bryant Park

Reading on the Lawn, Bryant Park

It’s time for another round of paintings for a good cause! I’m auctioning off eight paintings this week to benefit ProPublica. Go here for details. Every time I go to Bryant Park (which is right behind the glorious public library in New York City, if you’ve never been) I just walk around taking pictures of people reading–some on their cell phones, some on computers, and some even on real books. It’s a beautiful...

Read all about it, including an excerpt, in Entertainment...

Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach is not in Manhattan. It’s in Los Angeles. It’s a charming little town along the coast that nobody can afford to live in. But you can go there, and walk along the water, and take pictures! That part’s free. Anyway, this is just 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...

French Village

Ah…this is a lovely little village in France…I wish I was there right now. 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...

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...
