Summer Sale Time

Two paintings on Ebay today

"The Sunny Side of the Street"
Oil on canvas
12 x 16 inches

It's summer and I've been rummaging around my studio, rearranging paintings and looking for more space, which is fast disappearing. So, I've decided to start offering some of my older paintings for sale on Ebay in the hopes of finding them new homes and giving me some much needed shelf space. They really need to be hung up and enjoyed, and not left to languish on a shelf. So, here goes.

In this first painting, the sunlight was hitting the side of this building full on, and the architectural details really stood out. The building has been rehabbed since this painting was done and the Affordable Art Fair, where I had several paintings exhibited, was held here recently.

"Lady in the Window on 9th"
Oil on canvas
9 x 12 inches

I love to paint people in their windows, such a New York "thing" and something that is vanishing. The action is out on the street and before television and the internet, life's dramas took place in real time in one's neighborhood. This lady was looking out of her window during a street festival, taking in all of the activity below.
