East Village Haze

2015, Oil on Hardboard, 7"x 5"

This is a scene that I happened upon during my quest for cannoli and cappuccino. The light show that is New York City at night is particularly evident in the cloud cover. In the '70's and '80's there were only a handful of buildings that were lit and the Empire State Building was the color of the evening. In recent years many other buildings have joined in, each with its own color palette. The result is a more neutral glow, and the color far usually much more subtle.

Sands of New Jersey

Scenes From a Train

This seemed to be a comination of the last two small paintings yhat I've done (water tower, smaoke stack, etc.). It had the added bonus of having heavy earthmoving equipment and mountains of sand.

This is one of those scenes that epitomizes just how contrary the landscape can be along the railways.

One of the more impressive buildings along the rails. I'm afraid to find out what it's currantly being used for.
