Marvelous in Midtown


Marvelous in Midtown
10x10 inches
Oil on panel

 I was walking along Sixth Avenue one day when I stopped dead in my tracks by this French bakery's  storefront display. What caught my attention was the GINORMOUS chandelier, glistening and glinting and casting a warm glow over the counters filled with sweet treats. I admit to being a sucker for those crystals as I've always enjoyed my jaunts to the lighting district in the Bowery and have been inspired to create a painting. On googling this new bakery I learned that the chain Aux Merveilleux de Fred has 2 locations in Manhattan and has brought wonderful French baking to our fair city.

If you find yourself on 37th Street one day, you too might be enchanted and motivated to check out this marvelous culinary addition to the streetscape of New York.

NY Artists Equity exhibition "Shifting Balance"

New York Artists Equity Gallery, located on Broome Street on Manhattan's Lower East Side, has a new group exhibition on view through October 1st and my painting, GST Reflections III, oil on canvas, 42x24 inches, is on view. Thank you to artist Fran Beallor for selecting my work, this eclectic exhibition features art in many mediums and styles, a real mixed-bag. I was delighted to see my painting hung prominently in the front of the gallery and visible to passers-by. The opening reception was crowded and noisy, a real throwback of sorts to the gallery openings common in pre-Covid times.
