Pier 36 Painting Completed.

Pier 36. 48" x 120". Collage, Acrylic and Oil Paint on wood panels.
In late July I posted some images of the early stages of a new painting. Well….I think it’s finally finished. It is based on Pier 36 which is on the waterfront south of the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. The old pier building is unused and dilapidated and the Port of San Francisco has slated it for demolition. I imagine it will soon disappear in the clean-up frenzy which will precede the Americas Cup in 2013.

New York Painting in New York Gallery

NY Pier No 2. 48" x 72".
Stricoff Gallery. 564 W 25th Street, NY.
I was in New York a few weeks ago to spend time with one of my sisters and a friend. One morning, despite the extremely hot weather, we braved the streets and hit the High Line – part two had just opened. There’s not much shade on part two just yet as the trees are mere saplings, so half-way down the line we decided to descend to street level for a break and some shade. We headed for the gallery on West 25th St. which represents my work. As we approached we realized that one of my larger pieces was hanging in the window at street level and it looked really good! The painting depicts an old New York Pier which is located on the Hudson River just around the corner from the gallery.
