Save the date. LIC Arts Open May 18-22

LIC Gantry III
Oil on canvas
24 x 24 inches

A new painting of the LIC Gantry, looking across the East River towards Manhattan. I had done a small study of this subject some time ago and felt it warranted another look on a larger scale. Iconic LIC. I will have it on view during my upcoming Open Studio event on Sunday, May 22nd from 12-5pm. There will be a whole host of art-related exhibits and events during the festival. In addition, I will also have work on view in a group exhibition nearby, more to come as the date gets closer.

Let me know if you'd like to visit my studio to see where the magic takes place and I'll send you directions.

The American Radiator Building

Radiator Building Reflections
Oil on canvas
12x9 inches

I've had my eye on the Radiator building, located on 40th Street, facing Bryant Park for years and have taken many photographs of it. A big, gothic-inspired mass with wonderful architectural details. One day I hope to really do justice to this building in paint, but I decided to tackle the reflections of this building onto a nearly glass facade on Sixth Avenue. This small-scale painting packs a lot of punch and might become a larger painting one day.
