Red Scarf Reading Subway

  Red Scarf Reading Subway is part of a series illustrating the female figure reading in various situations.  In the past few years, most of these type of paintings where executed showing outdoor scenes.  The weather wasn't so accommodating last summer.  Which forced me to take up a series of indoor/subway scenes.

Talking and Looking on the Beach

  Talking and Looking on the Beach is part of a series that combines the figure with the beach.  Usually, these paintings have more to do with the figure than the picturesque setting of a beach.  These two figures are having a conversation about something which is out of the viewer's picture plane.

Two Figures Reading in Subway

  Two Figures Reading in Subway is part of a series depicting the female figure reading.  Usually, in these paintings, I focus on just one figure.  This work depicts the two figures reading simultaneously.  One figure must overshadow the other so as both don't fight for attention.

Red Building Blue Awning

  Red Building Blue Awning is a larger work (24 x 30) based on a successful smaller work done earlier.  I use the smaller works as studies for the larger works.  The smaller works then become the only photo reference I use for the painting.  The idea is to work more from memory and instinct rather than photographic factual information.  These figure are crossing a street near Tenth or Eleventh in Midtown.

The Village

  The Village is a larger work based on a smaller (12 x 16) work.  First, I like to work out these images on a smaller scale before proceeding to larger works.  These figures are crossing a street in Greenwich Village near Broadway and the Twenties.  The yellow stop light and purple shadow on the street below provide the only bright color contrast.
