Sheepshead Bay

 Sheepshead Bay • 6" x 8" • oil on canvas • August 2012

This is a little study that I did this past Tuesday in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.  Trying to capture floating/moving objects was definitely harder than I thought. Godzilla concurs :)

Sharon's Garden

Sharon's Garden • 16" x 20" • oil on linen • August 2012

I took a day trip to L.I. yesterday to visit my friend/ classmate Sharon and paint in her lovely backyard.
I already knew it is not fun to carry a wet painting on the NYC subway and now I know it is equally not as fun on the LIRR, especially at rush hour! I definitely want to find a way to consolidate my painting gear so I don't look like a circus freak when I step on the train. Maybe I should try to make a heavy duty backpack to hold my Russian easel? Hmm

Sky (unfinished)

Here is an unfinished painting of Sky from the beginning of July. Measures 18" x 36". Please excuse the creepy monster arm :D 

I really like working in this format, so I am thinking of unstretching this canvas and reusing the stretcher bars soon.
