Diagonals and Stripes

2015, Oil on Hardboard, 7"x 5"


On First Avenue in NYC, just north of First Street, there is a staging area for a variety of safety barriers for a big dig on Houton. It has been going on for a couple of years now and I pass by it on my way to Russ & Daughters, the finest purveyor of smoked fish in the city. I have been looking at this photograph since December, wondering what to do with it. It occurred to me that the question was not what to do with it, but whether I had enough patience to work with it.


  1. Love the composition and colors in this. One of my favorites!

    1. Thank you, Jade. It's one of mine too.
