Beach and Water

  Beach and Water is part of a series to do with the female figure reading in various poses and situations.  The figure reading on the beach almost feels like cheating.  Compared to a subway, the beach has built-in visuals which are very pleasing and relaxing to the eye.

Stand Alone

  Stand Alone is part of a series to do with the female figure reading.  I try to give the feeling of a tough, gritty, environment in these subway paintings.  The challenge of making something pleasing from such a harsh environment is what keeps me coming back.

Red Sweater Park Bench

  Red Sweater Park Bench is another work in a large growing collection that focuses entirely on the female figure reading.  I like for the figures in my paintings to look natural.  I've never hired models or had subject pose in a certain way.

Head Waiter

  Head Waiter is part of a series to do with food and drink.  As usual. I focus on the service people of these establishments.  The head waiter is looking beyond the server in front of him.  His sight is focused on something which is out of the picture plane.

Warmth in Numbers

  Warmth in Numbers is part of a series to do with the female figure reading.  The interior of a subway station can stay warm when it's crowded with many people.  The background is more active than the figure intentionally.

Shoulder to Shoulder

  Shoulder to Shoulder is part of a series to do with the female figure reading.  Living in a cold weather climate, like Chicago, forces me to look for interior scenes of this theme.  The verticals of the subway car are offset by the horizontal of the open book.

Noodle Shop

  Noodle Shop is part of a series to do with food and drink.  I usually focus on the service providers in these paintings, but in this case, the customer is the subject.  The small noodle shops are a staple for the lunch break of many workers.

Heavy Rain Times Square

  Heavy Rain Times Square is part of a series of urban landscapes.  Times Square in NYC always offers a backdrop of chaotic energy to a painting.  All this chaos is centered around the contrasting tilts of the pink umbrella and the white crosswalk of the street.

View


 View is part of a series to do with the female figure reading.  Occasionally, I will portray these female figures reading in a surreal setting such as this.  If you cover up the strip of blue at the top, the painting seems very normal and realistic.
