You sure have been working! Man!! Paintings, paintings and more paintings!! Goooood work!

This metro scene is very interesting! I, too, am fascinated by the shafts of light that intrude into the canyons of a city.

I have been busy putting a big open studio together here and have been unable to paint. Tomorrow, I hope!

WOW!!! This is a departure from dreamy bogs and colorful dinghies. Love the way the traffic signal intersects the picture.
Everytime I drive over those bold stripes painted at intersections on street, I think to myself, 'gee, I'd like to paint that'. Great job!

Thank you Mike. I try to be working. Sometimes painting becomes procrastination for other things I need to be doing like open studio! Drop me an email and tell me how it went.

Thanks Silvina. Yes, a bit of a departure. I figured it was about as different as you could get from the marsh, and equally as challenging.

Cooper, WOW, this is a stunning painting. The color just blows me away, it is amazing how the daily painting discipline helps an artist. You have really captured the feeling of the city.

Cooper.. how do you keep from smearing the paint with the t-square? Beautiful cityscape my friend.. shows your chops with the hard edge.

Heidi, Thank you. Yes it was an inspirational trip. Perhaps when we retire or in the next lifetime, I'd love to be a New Yorker.

Stephen, Thank you! Your paintings are probably some of the inspiration to get this going to begin with.

W.K., Thank you. I never reveal my secrets however. It was a nice change from the soft and curving forms of the marsh.

Thanks Gerald. I think this canvas shape helped with the feel. Good to get away from the 6" squares for a bit!

Cooper I think this is a really strong piece. If I were you I would perhaps focus more on these cityscapes than landscapes, I think you're stronger here. Good work.

Really nice drafting on this one Cooper. It pulls you right into the city. There is a cool animated character to the cars.

Thanks Robin. I liked the cars too. They have a matchbox quality to them.
