Crossing Broadway

Study for "Crossing Broadway", pastel on paper, 6 x 6

Merry Christmas Everyone!  Hope you all had a great holiday.  It went very fast!  Time for me to get back in the studio and try to get a lot of work done before I have to leave for the Caribbean.  I have quite a few rainy day studies that I am now working up into larger sizes.  I hope to post some big ones soon!  Have a great Christmas week!

And It Kept On Snowing . . .

"From My Window", pastel on paper, 6 x 6

We have well over a foot of snow up here in the foothills of the Adirondacks.  It is very beautiful and "Christmasy".  I love watching the snow fall . . from the comfort of my studio!

Rain on Phila Street

"Rain on Phila Street", 5 x 7, oil on panel

Hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season!  We are digging out from over a foot of snow in Saratoga Springs.  I just returned from the Caribbean last week.  It's quite an adjustment to go from 87 degrees to 0 in one week!  This is another rainy day study of Saratoga.  I guess it's time to move to snow scenes.  I have plenty of source material outside.

"Moon Rising", oil on panel, 6 x 6

I am still working on Christmas miniatures as most of the ones dropped off a couple of weeks have already sold.  Thanks to my collectors!  This small piece was done completely from memory.   I was thinking of the several summers we used to spend in Maine, both on land and on board the boat.  These days we go to Newport and Cape Cod - an equal but different kind of beauty - but I do think of Maine often!
