Central Park Bridge

This is a painting of the cast iron design on a bridge in Central
Park. It's about 6 feet wide a 4ish tall. It is streched on an
unsquare frame to play off the lines at the top and bottom of the piece.

Sewer cover and subway grate

Here is a recent composition being displayed on my stand at The
Metropolitan Museum of Art. The backround, as the title implies, is a
subway grate that I colored in randomly; a so it looks nice sort of

Songs of New York

Here is a painting a spiced up with some song titles about the city I
love. 'Honk' is a pretty sort song as is 'taxi'.
Not sure how some of them go, but if you hum a few bars...

Poetry projection

I gave a poetry reading a month ago where I read in front of a

other. This is a snapshot of the tansparent films I used.

Filling in subway grate

I'm working on one of my sewer/subway paintings here. It's pretty
relaxing work. And since most of my stuff is done outside on the
street it's nice to have something to work on on a rainy night like

Primary colors

The connection to a Mondrian influence is obvious here. But I'm trying
to be looser, and have a little fun. But I'd bet Mondrian had fun too.

Working in humidity

Some times it gets so humid the paint won't dry fast enough for me to
put on the next layer. Here I have a canvas drapped over a trash can
to try to get some air circulaing around it.

Croton cover

The Croton covers are some of the oldest in the city and were made for
the water supply that fed the Croton Aquaduct. This one is near
Riverside Drive. At the top of the picture you can see the sidewalk
and curb extending away from the canvas.

Long thin painting

This started as an experiment with using gold leaf (look at the top of
the painting) but started looking nice as a long thin piece. I'm going
to stretch it soon and see how that looks.

WSNY in progress

Here is a canvas that I am working on. It has been placed over the
manhole cover with the left side of the canvas in the street. The
yellow strip going up the side is the curb.

Subway grate

This painting is part of a commission of 25 works for John Jay College
of Criminal Justice that I completed in spring of 2008. I color the
squares in after I take the rubbing of the subway grate.

First Post

I took a year off to recharge. Although I have still been painting I
have not been out on the street selling and talking about art. I'm
posting this picture because it is a motif I'd like to explore more
this year; the sewer cover with the square subway grate.

The squares really compliment each other. One of the reasons I love
painting the NYC Sewer cover is because I like to play with the rhythm
in the little juxtaposed squares. The subway grate allows me to expand
the scope of the experiment.
