Studio Morning Glory, Oil on Paper, 7"x5"
Something a little different today. These beauties are growing on the side of my studio and I always say I have to do some paintings of them, they are so charming. I wish they lasted longer, as soon as the sun hits them they start to wilt, and start fresh the next morning.

Detroit Lime Co. oil on linen/panel 7"x5".
This is the first Detroit Painting to be added to the Daily Blog. I like the way the warm afternoon sun plays against the deep blue sky.

Nokomis Nocturne, 5"x7", oil on linen/panel. SOLD
We were riding our bikes over the intercoastal bridge after watching the sunset and this was the view, It reminded me of the Whistler nocturnes that we had just seen at the High Museum in Alanta Georgia.

Desert Truck Stop, Oil on linen/panel, 5"x7". How can you pass up such great color and abstract shapes. Along the highway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. I was excited with the intensity of the color, even though
some of it is due to pollution coming from Los Angeles.

Pacific Coast Highway #1, Oil on linen/panel 7"x5"
From our last trip to California, it is south of Los Angeles. This was the view from our roadside table at a resturant on Highway One. I thought it made an interseting composition with the vertical and horizontal bands and the plants making dark abstract shapes.

51 Greene St. doorway, oil on linen, 42"x36" At David Klein Gallery.This is the painting that the paint was also used for the small painting in the last post. I love painting the old cast iron buoldings in lower Manhattan. I like the abstractness of the shadows and reflections. Greene St. has some of the best cast iron building in NY.
Gulf Coast #4,oil on linen/panel 5"x7" I did this painting from the color palette I was using for a larger painting and wanted to use the colors before they dried. I will try to add some older paintings within the next few days
