Life on the Streets

Painting little snippets of life on any given street is becoming a favorite past time of mine. The following two paintings are of practically random buildings. They are both quite small works. Each was completed in a relatively short amount of time. I feel the speed in which they were painted contribute to their intimacy and vitality.

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.

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

Evenings Along Asbury

Last night was the first Evenings Along Asbury of the summer. Besides great community events, every Wednesday throughout the summer there is a plein air event in Ocean City. Through this paint out I have met fantastic local artists like Ryan Simmons, Chuck Law, and Martini.

As an artist, most of what I create is done in solitude. Evenings Along Asbury gives me a chance to work adjacent to other painters for an entire season. Needless to say, I look forward to it all year. It is refreshing to see the downtown come together for the sake of the arts.

The following piece was painted last night between 5 and 7:30 pm. It won third place in the first Ocean City Fine Arts paint out of 2011.

Sunset. Watercolor and Ink on paper. 7″ x 6″ (17.8 cm x 15.2 cm).
