Hudson Yards A'Building


Hudson Yards Ironworkers
Oil on panel
6x6 inches mounted on
8x8 inch panel

One of the small studies in my end of year sale that has headed to its new home. Hudson Yards which I see daily is still a construction zone, rising on Manhattan's west side. Lots of cranes, ironworkers and general hubbub in the area. A friend whose windows face the Yards consider these new buildings her urban mountain range and marvels at how much the scene keeps changing as each new building rises. With the advent of Covid, the tourists and visitors have pretty much disappeared and the high-end retail isn't doing much business these days. It remains to be seen what the future holds for this major real estate development project in the months and years to come.

End of Year Small Works Sale


For a larger view of each painting visit small works page on my website http://sharonflorinart.com/small-works.html


What a year it has been! Living through the triple whammy of the Covid pandemic, never-ending election coverage and the economy roller coaster has definitely been a challenge. How to survive as an artist? When New York City locked down last March, I had no art supplies at home so spent a good amount of time firing up the sewing machine and working on quilting and fiber art projects. 


In addition, with the help of my friend Sandy, I created the book, Sharon Florin’s New York-A Retrospective, highlighting several paintings from each of the 40 years I’ve been working in my LIC studio. The book is $25.00 which includes shipping and a limited amount of copies are still available.


When NYC began to slowly open up again, I purchased a small tabletop easel and art supplies to keep on hand at home and have since created many small “kitchen table” paintings, often working on the week-end as I’ve been able to get back to my studio most days. This has been a year of working small.


The oil on panels are 6x6 and 8x8 inches. The 6x6 inch paintings are mounted on 8x8 inch panels and are easy to hang from the keyhole on the back or can be displayed on a small stand or easel.


These small studies are affordably priced at $225.00 - $400.00 which includes shipping and handling and applicable taxes. Payment can be made by check or PayPal. Please feel free to contact me for information on availability and pricing of this new selection of small works.


As we’re nearing the end of this truly unforgettable year I want to thank all those who’ve purchased a copy of my book and/or added a “Florin” to their collections. Your support during this turbulent year has been so gratifying and very much appreciated.I would so love to find good homes for them.
