Sunny Day Near St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York City. <p><span style=`font-size: small;`>On a beautiful fall late Saturday afternoon, the setting sun made a beautiful warm glow against the cool facade of St. Patrick`s Cathedral. </span></p> Dr. Henry Foley. <p><span style=`font-size: medium;`>Commissioned portrait of Dr. Henry Foley, President of New York Institute of Technology.</span></p> Joshua Tree Park, Palm Springs CA. <p><span style=`font-size: small;`>Joshua Tree National Park is a vast protected area in southern California characterized by rugged rock formations and stark desert landscapes.  Here the serenity envelops one with the abundance of beauty along every natural path.</span></p> A Walk in Central Park, NYC. Marilyn. Bethesda Fountain2, Angel of the Waters NYC. Evening in Paris. <p><span style=`font-size: medium;`>Built by French film distributor Pathé to showcase their films, the legendary Paris Theater opened in 1948 and remains the only single-screen arthouse cinema in New York City. With its Arte Moderne style, one-of-a kind signage, it became a premier venue for the best films from around the world. Just steps from Fifth Avenue, the theater is a New York City treasure; here it is depicted on a crisp late fall evening.</span></p> Conservatory, Central Park NYC #2. <p><span style=`font-size: small;`>Returning to a scene I painted many years ago in spring, the Conservatory is seen in early fall surrounded by residential buildings along Fifth Avenue and leaves beginning to create a palette of autumn colors. The Conservatory is an iconic and beautiful place in New York City in every season.</span></p> Spring Street Market, NYC. <p><span style=`font-size: small;`>The New York City landscape is constantly changing, and this 24/7 market at the corner of Spring and Lafayette Sts. is no longer there, succumbing to the general development of the area. This lonely and somewhat intimidating scene was attractive to me as the dramatic light and complementary red-green of the awning and sidewalk reflections demonstrate how bright and colorful the City can be at night.</span></p> Josh Allen Oil Collage. Grand Central Station, Main Concourse. Bemelman’s Bar at the Carlyle 2. Harbor Sunset. New York City Public Library. Bemelman’s Bar at the Carlyle NYC. In The Money. So difficult to capture the beauty and majesty of thoroughbred horses in the stretch. You can probably guess who the winner was as they are about to go over the finish line. If not, perhaps a ballerina painting is more your cup of tea? Stars & Bars II. <p><span style=`font-size: large;`><em>SOLD</em></span></p> Twenty-Third Street, NYC. Nighttime on Twenty-third St in New York City; iconic Empire State Building glows against a midnight blue sky in early fall. Sand Beach, Acadia National Park, Maine. <p>On the east side of Mount Desert Island the small Sand Beach is nestled between the mountains and rocky shore in Acadia National Park, Maine.</p> Bruno Mars. <p><span style=`font-size: small;`>He`s one of the most talented and exciting young performers today.</span></p> Patrick Mahomes Oil Collage. <p><span style=`font-size: small;`>Destined to be one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks to ever play football, and soon the highest paid, Patrick Mahomes is an amazing athlete and thrilling to see play the game.</span></p> Checking Messages. <p>A lunchtime break on a beautiful sunny summer day is a good time to check messages on your phone.  As is usually the case for my work, the painting is all about the light, warm sunlight and cool shadows.  An irresistible subject for me, and thankfully found all around us.</p> Backstage. In this painting, I`ve returned to a favorite subject, the candid, backstage and exhausting life of the ballet. FDR (After Perskie). Glancing at the Field. Jockey Victor Espinosa glances back at the field after guiding American Pharoah to victory in the Haskell Invitational, the stallion`s first race after winning the Triple Crown in 2015. Hyde Park, London. An original oil painting on South Carriage Dr, along West Albert Lawn in Hyde Park, London. The sun lights the lawn in early June, with beautiful dappled light and shadows under verdant trees near Queen`s Gate. Main Beach, East Hampton. <p> <span style=`font-size: medium;`><strong><em>SOLD</em></strong></span></p> Palm Too, NYC. <p>On a bright and sunny day, this is a painting of the Palm Too restaurant on Second Avenue in New York City.  Sun streaming across the hundred-year-old tenement buildings casts beautiful shadows from architectural details.  This painting is a diptych, two 30` x 30` paintings together to form one image 30` x 60`.</p> Hydrangeas and Roses. Michael Caine. Maine Landscape. The Move. In Washington Square Park, New York City, I came upon one of many chess games in progress. The player of black contemplates his next move with the intensity necessary to be a winner. I hope you feel his trepidation. Ballerina at Piano. <p><span style=`font-size: large;`><em>SOLD</em></span></p> Iconic Brando. Flower Corner, Kensington High St., London. An original oil painting of Flower Corner shop at the corner of Kensington High and Church Streets in London, England. A bright sunny day creates irresistible shadow shapes to paint as the light falls on beautiful architectural forms. Trifecta. An original oil painting of thoroughbred racing from a series of photos taken at Belmont Racetrack. The energy of the lead jockey is palpable as he almost wills his racehorse across the finish line. (Yes he won). After Vermeer, Girl with a Red Hat. Girl with a Red Hat is a small painting by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, executed 1665-1666, currently in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.. It is one of a number of Vermeer`s tronies -- depictions of models fancifully dressed that were not, as far as is known, intended to be portraits of specific, identifiable subjects. After many years admiring this painting, I finally tried my hand at a reproduction; I am pleased with the result. The major effort was to translate a painting that is about 7` x 9` into 20` x 24`. Mansi. <p>An original oil painting of a young woman, Mansi, performing a traditional South Indian dance called `Bharata Natyam`. Her performance, accompanied by Carnatic music, is a sort of `graduation` performance, capping many years of practice. It lasts about two hours, as the dancer performs many hand, neck and eye movements, each with significant spiritual and cultural meanings. The elaborate and colorful costuming, with several changes throughout the performance, also has significant meaning, as the dancer wears a several ornaments of shining stones on neck, ears, hands, and head, jasmin garland in her hair and foot trinklets with small bells.</p>  <p> </p>  <p><span style=`font-size: large;`>SOLD OUT</span></p> Amsterdam Still Life #2. An original oil painting of Delft pottery, from the Claes Haesje restaurant in Amsterdam. Claes Haesje is located in the historic center of Amsterdam, between the Spui and Dam Square, opposite the Amsterdam Museum. The restaurant is located in six historic buildings, where many original architectural features, such as stairs, corridors and halls have been preserved. At the Carlyle. This oil painting of musician bass player was inspired by a concert I attended at The Carlyle Hotel in New York City. Singer Steve Tyrell was appearing, and his combo included this musician. <br /><br /> Anthony. Oyster Bar. Still Life with Decanter and Fruit. <p><em><strong><span style=`font-size: medium;`>SOLD</span></strong></em></p> Elena. After Sargent, Fumee D’Ambre Gris. After Degas. Study In Red & Green. Still Life With Blue Bottle. Summer Reverie. From a Fashion Photograph Edie`s Millinery, Vancouver. Maestro. <p><span style=`font-size: large;`><span style=`font-size: medium;`><em><strong>SOLD</strong></em> </span><br /></span></p> First Turn. <p>Even the most casual thoroughbred horse racing fan will recognize the iconc spires of Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby, in this oil painting. The entrants become a blur of hooves and stable silk colors as they enter the first turn, galloping by at nearly 40 miles per hour.</p>  <p><em>SOLD</em></p> After Sargent #2. Top of the Stretch. Conservatory, Central Park, New York City. <p><strong><span style=`font-size: large;`><em>SOLD - Limited edition giclees available.</em></span></strong></p> Dress Rehearsal. <p><em><strong><span style=`font-size: medium;`>SOLD</span></strong></em></p> All Out. Christopher Street Tattoo, Greenwich Village NY. Snow House. Tendu Devant. Getting Ready. Small Adjustment. <p><span style=`font-size: medium;`><em><strong>SOLD</strong></em> </span></p>
