A Royal Collection

"Met Life Reflections"
Oil on canvas
24 x 18 inches

An interesting turn of events. I received a call from an international business school interested in purchasing one of my paintings. I had visited the school several years before to attend an art event at the invitation of a friend who works there, had met several people and handed out my business card. One gentleman remembered my work, hence the contact. I submitted several paintings for their consideration and this painting was the one that they wanted. After some back and forth on price we came to an agreement and the painting was delivered. I am delighted that "Met Life Reflections" was presented as a gift to TRH Prince and Princess of Asturias of Spain during their recent visit to New York City. The feedback I received was that they loved the painting. Where it will eventually end up is anyone's guess, but I can now truthfully state that my work is in their royal collection. Sweet!

Gargoyles, gargoyles everywhere

"CCNY Gargoyle #2"
Oil on panel
6x6 inches

The excitement and business of the recent exhibit has subsided so it is now back to the business of painting. Today's painting is the second gargoyle study from the campus of the City College of New York. I plan to be looking at gargoyles for awhile as I would like to create a whole series of these whimsical architectural details. If you find yourself uptown near the campus, stroll around and check out these wonderful figures. They are everywhere!
