Some reflections on Fifth Avenue

Each pane a small painting

Fifth Avenue Reflections #2
Oil on canvas
30 x 24 inches

It's a rainy afternoon and I'm sitting at the computer putting together information for two upcoming shows this spring and thought I'd share this painting with you. This piece was painted in 1999, has long since been sold and remains one of my favorite paintings. Each little pane of glass is different and becomes a mosaic of sorts. A giclée of this painting, featured on "The Florin Collection" site, will be on view in my upcoming show in the heart of Greenwich Village at the Ansonia Pharmacy Windows on 10th Street and Sixth Avenue, April 14th - May 13th. I enjoy showing in this venue as passersby often stop to look at the work, many of who would rarely go to a gallery. I've gotten some great feedback and comments in my guestbook in the past and have added new collectors to my list of buyers. More to come on this upcoming show. If you're in the neighborhood and have a chance to see the paintings and giclée's on view, please feel free to leave a message in my guestbook and mention that you heard about this show through the blog. Thanks!

Long Island City Courthouse Portrait

Another study in the LIC series

LIC Courthouse Portrait (study)
Oil on canvas panel over wood
5 x 5 inches

A new month, a new painting to share today. This is another small study in the new Long Island Series of paintings that I am currently working on. Here I've painted a straight on portrait of this elegant building - standing proud in a once industrial neighborhood, that is changing daily with all of the development taking place. This little bit of history remains though.
