This is a 6" x 8" original oil painting inspired by my recent trip to New York with my mother. It was very difficult to walk with an umbrella, hold a cup of coffee and try to take pictures while walking fast to avoid collisions with other pedestrians (especially my mom who kept trying to challenge me to an umbrella duel.) It was worth the aggravation though. I apologize to all the New Yorkers for being an annoying tourist, but it was for the sake of art. Actually everyone that we encountered on the trip was very friendly, and showed no signs of impatience with my incessant picture taking. This painting is for sale at The Artist's Hand Gallery in Indiana, PA. SOLD.

This painting is 8" w x 10" h and is for sale on Ebay for $99. It was inspired by a recent trip to New York. I was sad at first that it was rainy, but then changed my mind once I saw the patterns of light that the water created. The umbrellas added to the architecture of the city (and helped to hide the cars in the streets so I wouldn't have to paint them all). Sold.
