New NYC Painting: Urban Colors

Currently, my latest NYC painting is called "Crosswalk" but perhaps the title in my blog post (Urban Colors) is a better description. Any suggestions are most welcome.

"Crosswalk" is a different view of the city, focusing on the brilliant, jewel tones under an clouded sky still working to cast the spell of sunset. (I hope that's at least sort of a sentence.)

It is one of many paintings destined for my "In Focus: People and Places"  solo exhibition being held at Herndon ArtSpace from January 13 to February 22, 2015. For now, it will go in the Places collection of my web site ... but closer to the exhibition install date, I'll put up a preview including all the pieces that will hang in the show.

Tonight is "tame my brushes" time -- as they've been extremely used and abused of late. Then, I'll be selecting pieces to gather and bring to the Chastain Park Fine Art Festival next weekend being held in Atlanta. Saturday and Sunday, November 1&2, I'll be in Booth #113, 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sunday.

Time to go...
