Mamma MOMA

Going to the Museum of Modern Art in New York is spiritually uplifting. It reminds me why I paint. It reminds me that I am not alone in my need to paint. Walking around the MOMA brings me almost to tears. I get sappy just thinking about it. The power of the art housed in that building cannot be expressed in words. The block emanates beauty. The following pieces were painted on site in New York after the recent visit to my favorite museum.

Central Park, Inspired by Impressionism:

After Noon Fall. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Wish We Were Here

Sadly, the summer is winding down. Evenings Along Asbury in Ocean City is my favorite part of summers in NJ. This week was the last Evening Along Asbury of 2011. It was a great summer. Can’t wait until next year.

I painted the exterior of Jon and Patty’s Coffee Bar and Bistro. The owners of this establishment donated prizes to the Arts League every week. Support local businesses that support the arts!

We Wish Were Here. Watercolor and ink on paper. 5″ x 7″.

It pains me to admit that the summer is almost gone. Next week will be the last Evenings Along Asbury of 2011. It’s been a beautiful year for plein air painting. This week’s work:

D’Arcy D’Lux

This month’s Dr. Sketchy’s Philly session was exceptionally fun. The model, D’Arcy D’Lux, really knew how to put on a show.
