"Hudson River Morn" in Progress at the Torpedo Factory

Past time to post ... but this is what I was working on yesterday at the Torpedo Factory. Today was portrait commission day in my home studio.

I hope you can join me on Thursday night for the Second Thursday Reception at the Torpedo Factory, 6-9pm, 105 N. Union Street, Alexandria, VA. I'll be hanging out in Studio #333 hoping you'll come by to visit.

Also, since the Art League Gallery is right downstairs in the Torpedo Factory, you can see my painting, "London Times" that was accepted into this month's 'Scapes (International Landscape) exhibit. Same time for the reception there.

The oil sketch for "Hudson River Morn" was painted in my NYC hotel room's shower this past Spring. The sketch is my main visual source for this painting. I want to capture my impressions from the stay ... the river at sunrise. This feels right.
