"Chaos"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite
sold


I'm back in my little painting hut again - with immediate work to do, finishing up the group of new work for a mini-solo show opening June 19th at the 16 Patton Gallery in Asheville. I purposely picked this scene to warm up the brain and brushes - the beginning of my experience in New York City, as I was driving in on that first Saturday afternoon in Crazytown USA.

I hope to balance my time with some small, very loose pieces along with more-realized, larger work - those you'll see closer to the opening of the show. So I hope you'll check back often, I'm raring to go.

I would look down those NY streets and see the scene and think "wow, wish I could capture that in a painting".

Very nice!

This might be one of my favorites! You have captured the movement of the city and how I love your brush strokes. Thanks for keeping me looking ahead.

You're kidding. Yep...a typo for sure. 6'X6' and not an inch smaller on this beauty!
