In the streets of New York City ParisLondonOntario’s countryside , and on Toronto Island I hunt for paintings on the bike. For New York Armory Week I exhibited at the Clio Art Fair, and won awards for Etching at the League Print Exhibition as well as Lithography and Paintings awards. Then I drove to paint in the beautiful beaches of the Gaspé Peninsula, Québec. A great Nashville project “My View from Home Mail Art” included me in their press article and a television news show.  Making reportage paintings in DC,  reporters Rebecca Knier and John Henry of CBS WUSA News 9 did an onsite Jan 7, 2021  interview with me . Then, Pete Townshend of The Who commissioned a painting for his upcoming music project The Age of Anxiety. I left DC to paint in Toronto, Florida, New York, and the Adirondacks .

I have painted hundreds of portraits and these are some.

Sometimes these are about individual personalities, like this oil painting of Connie in Manhattan.  And Claudia on Toronto Island.

 And Sofia on Toronto Island.

And Richard and Charles at home.

I made this series of six paintings of the view of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan Skyline sitting on the docks at Staten Island from midday until night — it was so beautiful and I felt new in New York. Mayor Michael Bloomberg asked for my images to represent Immigrant Heritage: they appeared citywide on screensavers, posters, and stationary, and were featured in two articles in the New York Times.


This is Manhattan:

Gramercy Park, Manhattan
Central Park South, Manhattan
Central Park North, Manhattan
