From Christopher Street Pier, July 22, 2009


It was difficult to see the statue. The heat and the haze darkens and softens the edges. The green patina not even visible, but this is summer and this is what I think about when walking the New York streets in the cold of winter. My eyes squinting from the sun. Sunbathers engaged in conversation, the sprinklers going off and the distant horns from West Side Parkway.

Thompkins Square Park (sold)

Everyone seemed to want to rest for a moment in the park, in the heat. This man sat on the ground and leaned his back against the bark of the tree in the shade. For a few minutes he was perfectly still in this bustling city.

Across the Hudson


From Christopher Street Pier you can see across the Hudson. The day was hot and hazy, the air heavy. The details lost in the smog. If I could I would go to the same spot day after day for an entire year and respond to the light and the temperature. This painting would be July 22, 2009

Over and Over

Sitting on the lawn, I started thinking of the last time I sat in clover. Not that long ago, but even then I thought of times before that and summers before that. Instead of seeking a four leaf, you just pulled up two and made one. As simple as that. If it were only as simple as that....


This is 40:15 and is $40 to the first response.

Everyday Items (both sold)

These paintings were painted for an exhibition
that was in an apartment, everything had to be what one would find
in a living space, only it had to be art. Have you ever looked at your
toothbrush for a few hours?!
