The Edge of Night

2016, Oil on Hardboard, 7"x 5"
#215


I'm revisiting a previous subject, the building that houses the New York State Supreme Court's Appellate Division. It's located just east of Madison Square Park, in Manhattan. After taking even more photographs of this magnificent building, I'm certain that if anything ever happens there I'll be getting a knock on my door. I hope that it's worth it.

Scenes From a Train
#214


The golden hour returns. The early evening light from the low sun sheds a beautiful golden light and long, high shadows on everything that it touches. Unfortunately this WPA relic is no longer standing. Time, weather and neglect had finally taken its toll. The sun finally set.

This is a painting of that moment of gathering, when the previous wave is starting to go out and the new wave is coming in. It is that place in time just before everything breaks loose.

The Point

The Caribbean

At each end of a bay on Tortola, there is normally a point like this one. They are usually rocky and relatively immobile. They are the sentinels that keep watch over their beach.
