Lady Luck

Atlantic City and I have a love hate relationship, but warm weather is coming so we may be setting aside our differences.

Skinny People

I struggle with drawing people who are clinically underweight. It seems no matter who I draw, they end up smaller than in real life. If said person starts small, they end up absurdly tiny. This is something I need to work on. All people are beautiful, and I should be able to portray them accurately.

The Camera Adds Ten Pounds. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Starlight Ballroom

Last night, I showed at the annual Reflections fashion event at the Starlight Ballroom in Philadelphia. Watching masses of people look at my work is a nerve wrackingly voyeuristic experience. Especially when the music is too loud to eavesdrop.  To ease my mind, I painted.

Of In. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Unframed: $175.00

Many skilled, visual artists were showing with me. Please take moment to check out the work of Cherry Buttons, Mizz Mechanique, and Linda Guenste.

The main focus of the evening was fashion. The air was thick with beauty, music, sex, and clove cigarettes.

Store Down the Shore

This watercolor painting of a Jersey shore store front won first place in the July 6th Ocean City Paint Out. Shop windows in vacation towns are always eye catching. Something about that orange dress demanded to be painted.

Down the Shore Store. Watercolor and Ink on paper. 7″ x 6″ (17.8 cm x 15.2 cm).

SOLD

Feel free to join me at next Wednesday’s Evenings Along Asbury plein air painting event.

Shopping in Paradise

It is hard to describe a trip to Waikiki without mentioning the shopping district. From ABC‘s to shopping malls, downtown Honolulu is covered in stores. Below is a painting of a shave ice stand tucked away in an alley by the beach.

The International Market is a bustling collection of  cart vendors, street performers, and outdoor shops. Tropical plants combined with the perpetually perfect Hawaiian weather make the whole set up beautiful. Please click to enlarge the following image as I don’t think the thumbnail does it justice.

Women’s fashion on the island can be summed by sun dresses and swim suits.

Where there is retail there are food courts. This Tiki Burger hut was charming.

This cat resides at my favorite restaurant on Oahu, Ramen Nakamura.
