A Midtown Abstract

 


Midtown Abstract

While walking around midtown in the theater district, I looked up and noticed these interesting geometric abstractions reflected in a newly constructed glass building. This small painting captures the stark black grids that nicely offset the colorful abstracted buildings nearby.

Fireworks in the Big Apple

 

Empire Fireworks 2021
Oil on panel
8x8 inches

The fireworks display on July 4th in NYC this year were pretty spectacular. Although I didn't see the pyrotechnics on the East River up close, I checked out the television coverage. The best part though was having a great view of the Empire State Building's fantastic display - shimmering lights, fireworks and excitement in the air, woohoo! The much loved iconic landmark went all out to celebrate the glorious 4th and having a bird's eye view was wonderful. Knew this was a great subject for a painting as I watched the fireworks lighting up the night sky and here is the result.
