Espresso for One



Though the name "espresso" indicates that the drink is consumed quickly, it is still worth the time to sit down and mindfully appreciate it. Unless you are in Italy where they sometimes charge more if you sit down. The cafe pictured above is in New York, where one can let the caffeine take effect before hitting the pavement. Oil on 12"h x 6"w x 1"d composite board.

Ladies Night Out


I've had the reference photo for this painting since my 2010 trip to Paris. It took a while before I was comfortable painting more than one person together. Also I was always focused on painting things that were distinctly Parisian. Aside from the people smoking and the Chanel bag, you really can't tell where this is, which is fine. Most of my recent work is about people doing their thing, wherever it is.

This is one of several new paintings added to the UGallery site this week. Oil on 16"w x 12"h composite board.

New Website

I want to announce that a new website is in the works. I will still post all new paintings to this blog so everyone can easily see what's new, but I plan to show all available work in neater categories on the website. If you are looking for anything under a certain subject, you will more easily be able to see what is still available. My work will still be available at the galleries I currently show with, and the website will provide links to their sites. I will also have paintings available for purchase on the website, as well as some prints.

Along the Lungarno Torrigiani in Florence
