Westchester Work Trucks - watercolor

watercolor, 2014
original available, 11"x15" $200

      I drive by this old gas station converted into a detailing shop once in a while. They always have a handful of trucks parked in a near-swampy field next door, some of which are for sale. I finally saw this arrangement that made me grab my camera to get a reference photo. I got a few other shots from different perspectives, close-ups, etc. So, you'll probably see one or two more paintings of these trucks. This is the same place where I found the 1950 Kaiser I've painted several times (50 Kaiser #1 and 50 Kaiser #3). Obviously, there's a 50 Kaiser #2 also that I haven't posted here yet.

Salem Christmas - watercolor

watercolor, 2014
original available, 11"x14" $150

      Merry Christmas to all! This is another one from a recent trip to Old Salem just after they decorated back in early November. I usually don't do holiday-themed art. But, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to find some reference material. Unfortunately, this was the only Christmas-themed image I found. It'll have to do in a very Moravian-like understated sort of way.

Salem Leaves - watercolor

watercolor, 2014
original available, 9"x12" $200

      This might just be my favorite from the recent Old Salem trip. Adding a figure to landscapes and urban scenes has been on my radar for a while now. I just haven't found the right scene. And, then I just walked by this guy raking one Saturday in November while strolling through Old Salem. The stars aligned and the angels sang.

Rome - watercolor

watercolor, 2014
original available, 9"x12" $50

     A VERY loose interpretation of a scene from Google Maps Street View of Rome for Virtual Paintout. Parts of this turned out exactly the way I wanted them to; others not so much. Overall, it's a reasonable attempt that gives the feel of a quick plein air sketch -- kinda, sorta what Virtual Paintout's all about.

Spare - watercolor

watercolor, 2014
original available, 11"x15" $175

      I was drawn to this because of the abstract color-field look of it.
