South Street Bridge


16x20 oil on linen

I'm heading for New York and New Jersey this weekend. I'll be attending the closing reception of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club show and be present to accept my award. very fun.
The timing worked out very well as I have a wedding reception painting event Saturday night in Red Bank, New Jersey. It will be a lot of traveling about - but I will call that sightseeing. I'm anxious to see NY in the fall. Will Central Park be all decked out in color? Wish me luck as I go it all alone in the big city.

You might remember the study I did of this scene (below). I really liked the warm color scheme but I am not liking the buildings in the back. I think I've put too much "detail" in them. Also, the photo of the larger image doesn't capture the yellows at all... the ground and sky are much warmer than appear here.

congrats on your award, robin.
Regarding the painting and the study, I agree about the detail. there is such an authentic feeling of moving traffic and city air in the study. I still love that one best.

Fantastic painting, I really enjoyed your NY trip as I was there around the same time and didn't paint. Congratultions!

I love them both, but the more finished one is my favorite.

Congrats on the award!

Stunning job! I love the feeling of the light. It could be 1933, the city feels safe. Beautifully done. I love seeing the progress as well.
