Spheres

I have put “Autumn Song” away for a while, and will revisit it again soon.

In the meantime, I thought I’d display something that I’ve never shown before. I have a collection of mineral spheres. One day, for drawing practice when I was burned out of ideas, I did this.

First Step: Autumn

I’m working on a new piece,  “Autumn Song”.  I miss the turning of leaves I used to get in Connecticut.  Fall used to be a time of tangy apple cider, pumpkins, and crisp cool weather.  I’m trying to capture some of that here, and also a tribute to long held love and relationships.

Here is the aceo, the basic block in.

Lily

I’m still working on Sentinel, which is near completion.

I’m waiting to hear back about a juried show. I’m not sure if I’ve been accepted into it or not, or whether there is more for me to do to be selected. I emailed, no answer.

Since I’m so fond of putting flowers in the sky, I did this, just for fun.

More Sycamore pictures

I’ve been taking sick time from work, and not getting much done in artwork either.

From my apartment in Queens, I can see Manhattan in the distance during the winter. In the warmer weather, the old sycamore blocks the view. I believe I have posted one summer picture of the sycamore, here’s one of the winter ones, where I try to capture the mood of a gray winter’s day. I did two of these, and I’m not sure which one is more successful.

An update on Sentinel

I’m holding off on working on artwork today.

It’s a beautiful autumn day in New York City. Yesterday, we went to another city, and past trees that were tinged…just promising fall colors. It’s times like this I miss living in the suburbs.

Here is the work on “Sentinel”, as it stood yesterday.

59th Street Bridge

This is a drawing of the bridge that spans the East River between Manhattan and Queens. It’s commonly called the 59th Street Bridge, but its official name is the Queensboro Bridge.

I wanted to add some interest to the background, so it wouldn’t be an ordinary picture of a structure.

I did this a couple of years ago. I’m presently working some more on Sentinel, and I hope to have an update, soon.
