Snow in Central Park ( from a photo on a card)

I sent out some Christmas cards with this beautiful image on them....The buildings in the distance have such a haunting feeling up againt the snowy ground...also the stormy sky always gets me.... I liked it so much I thought I would try to draw this is what came from that experiment...I enjoyed my time drawing...and that's the reason I do this work...c'est tout... Black China Marker on Bristol paper  @16x20"

The Stag on a Starry Night

Here is the first drawing from my mind I have really ever done ...or at least for a long since I was six? Anyway I did bring this stag sculpture to the studio and that is how I got the inspiration... not to mention it was the Christmas season and this is what came to mind....Merry Christmas !!! 24x36" china  marker(wax pencil) on paper

Wilcox Farm Woods

And so after I painted the three heifers in the AM... I wandered into the beautiful woods in the PM and could not leave before I had spent some hours with this incredible woodland stream and autumn trees.... I was about to start painting a huge tractor in the shed but realized that I would love it if the farmer backed it out of the shed before I painted it...better composition....but he was nowhere to be found and so the woods called...glad I listened...will have to catch the tractor another fall day....maybe spring  watercolor 22x30"

Three Little Heiffers

OK so I did paint this a couple of weeks ago before it started to snow....back at the Wilcox's farm, my favorite farm of all.... these girls just look so cute to me and I sort if let myself have fun painting them....of course they stood still for about three I really made most of it up!Even the tractor didn't have tires on it...  watercolor on 22x30" paper

Fox in the Snow

I painted this study several years ago and then decided it needed something....It was just the road and the I added the was pretty tricky to figure out but I like it more now.... The new show at 510 Warren St Gallery opened up last night....seemed to be a hit... oil on canvas 20x24"
