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.

Welcome to my new blog

At other peoples suggestion, I have moved my blog from Myspace, to here.

Having finished “Louie’s Spot”, I am moving on to the next drawing. I am working out the composition and color scheme on an aceo.

For now, I am going to show you something I’ve been fascinated with for years, now. It’s the old sycamore outside my living room window. What I am showing now, is a small version I did in the summer.
