9th street and 7th avenue

I am so excited to start painting enamel on Plexiglas again.

I have taken a break the past few years because I haven’t had a space.

Now I have a lovely little space and many ideas for paintings!

Here is my space and some images of a painting I started 6-7 years ago and have been working on this week.

7th ave and 9th

9th street

Brushing up my oil painting skills, I decided to paint a Brooklyn scene for my son’s room.

I started with a 30″ x 40′” canvas and primed it with blue and purple acrylic paint.

Using oil paint, brushes, palette knives, etc., I began the painting….

I don’t think I am finished…. I think the bright blue and purple kind of distract from the water tower.
