Afternoon in Greenwich Village


As dinner time approaches, the streets of New York's Greenwich Village start to liven up even more . I visited in April during a warm, sunny weekend and enjoyed wandering the sunny streets at happy hour, stopping here and there for coffee or a glass of wine. Oil on 12"h x 18"w stretched linen.

View of the Ponte Santa Trinita


The Ponte Santa Trinita bridge in Florence, Italy, is bathed in the warm morning sunlight. This was painted from a photo I took during one of my morning jogs along the river. I would wake up as early as possible to catch the dramatic light on the domed buildings. This was difficult because of the long nights of wine drinking, but the plentiful espresso bars all over the city helped me accomplish my goals! SOLD.
