Oil sketch in Prospect Park

The forecast was for partly cloudy in the morning and then threats of rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon (so, what's new?!).   My first instinct was to head down Union Street and capture the pretty flowerpots adorning  the stoop of one particular brownstone, but then I remembered that I left my Julian half-easel at my studio. So,  I grabbed my pochade box and headed out to Prospect Park for the morning to see what I could see (I need somewhere to sit if I'm going to use my pochade box).  Lots of greens, a cool breeze in the shade and not too many people about. Perfect! I settled on this scene: Prospect Park, east path looking north

There was an empty park bench in the shade.  Here's my setup with the view in the background:

And, here's a closer view of the painting and palette. I may make this a habit for the rest of the summer!

Painting accepted into juried show: "Brooklyn"

I just found out that one of my paintings, Early Evening on Garfield Place, will be included in The Brooklyn Show, a themed-exhibition juried by Florence Neal, the co-founder (1990) and director, of Kentler International Drawing Space in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Ms. Neal is also an artist and her work, along with several public art commissions, is presented in local, national and international venues.  This group show is hosted by the 440 Gallery, a jewel-like gallery in Park Slope, Brooklyn, located at 440 6th Avenue (between 9th & 10th Streets. The show opens on June 25 and runs through July 25, 2009. early evening on garfield place

A belated sale from the GCC show

Today I sold another painting, "Sunset from 9th Street Bridge" that was in the GCC benefit exhibition last month. Who would have thought with this economy?..." in the face of all the fiscal gloom and doom around us", said John Muir, a board member of GCC and a collector of my paintings. The buyer was thrilled to know that 40% will go towards GCC's efforts (and it's tax-deductible!). There is hope; let's be optimistic! sunset-from-9th-st-bridge-2007

Meanwhile, I'm re-grouping in the studio. I'll be posting works in progress soon.
