"Cutlass, Light Across the Field"

8x10" oil on canvas panel (sold)

This is a scene that caught my attention in a very subtle way. I don't like searching for things to paint, I'd much rather come across something inspiring during everyday life. This was painted from an image taken while on a late afternoon walk through San Bruno Park. Even though the photo was taken in California, the scene brought back memories of childhood days in New Jersey.

"California Street"

6x6" oil on Gessobord

This is the view looking west on California Street. I love taking photos from the middle of the street but it really seems to aggravate the taxi drivers.

I'll have an assortment of 6x6" paintings available on DailyPaintworks this month. The price for an unframed painting is $175 plus shipping. You can check em out here: My DPW Gallery

"Eucalyptus, Heritage Park"

20x16" oil on canvas

Well I've got the saws out and I'm in frame production mode. I'm making frames for the upcoming "Tiny" show at the Studio Gallery. All work has to be less than 7x7 inches in size and less than $400. I'm building my usual natural wood floaters frames. So, this week I'm going back and forth from the easel to the saws.

As for painting, I'm working on 20x20 inch versions of some of the cityscapes from the 50/50 show. I've done about 8 of them so far and I feel pretty happy with the results. I'll post some photos soon.

The above painting is from the Burlingame Paint Out last week.
