"Central Parking"

16 x 8"

oil on masonite

sold

It's a good thing this was a holiday weekend because this painting took me all weekend. Admittedly between the swimming and eating and sleeping late. I'm an impatient painter if you don't know that about me - I want to start and finish in the same day or night. If I go to bed with a piece half done, I think about it and rework it in my head all night. Drives me nuts. But this weekend was the perfect time to attempt such a painting and I'm totally thrilled with the finished product. Hope you all had a good time off and I'll be back in a couple of days, after I catch up on some work.

This new painting will be included in my July show at 16 Patton, in Asheville. The scene is from New York City, a crowded bench in Central Park in October.

While most of your paintings have that 'wow-effect' this one is just most amazing. I love the spot-on feeling in conveys - I'd have thought it was a lot bigger, it gives the impression of space. Beautiful!

The lighting is gorgeous on this one! It's been really amazing to see you go from good to great in the time you've been blogging.

The sense of light, depth and space is just wonderful. I would have thought it much larger, too. WoW.
