My views out various windows

My paintings here are divided into three groups, Cityscapes,  Landscapes and Other Interests.

I decided to paint in 2003.  Having finished my career in printing and publishing, I saw that it was time to think about a productive and creative way to spend this third of my life. One day a little blue bird perched on my shoulder and chirped in my ear: “Why not learn how to paint?  You might be good at it.” I signed up for a life drawing class at the School of Visual Arts the very next day. 

When I lived in the Flatiron District of Manhattan I became fascinated by the New York Cityscapes. Our building had a roof deck that offered incredible views of the city and I became fascinated by the mammoth and majestic wood water tanks that populate our rooftops. They are still one of my favorite subjects.

The Landscapes painting are inspired by the beautiful places I have visited over the years. My wife and I travel a lot, usually visiting the friends and relatives who live in these places or enjoying one of our wonderful vacations.

Other Interests are portraits, still lifes and visions from my dreams, visions and imagination. It's where I experiment with unexpected color, texture and composition. 

There is so much to see in New York and this is only a beginning. 

Many of these painting are for sale. If you are interested in purchasing a painting please contact me here.
