409 Bleeker Street


24x20 oil on linen
Available at Russell Collection Fine Art

This is my second favorite recent painting. Its based on photos and a plein air piece I did in the city on my last visit. That was '09. I didn't get to go last year, but I'm planning a trip for this summer with some artist friends.

If you are interested in a guided painting trip there, check out Phil Levine's site. He plans workshops with some of the best teaching artists all over the western world, and he is leading a figure painting class in the city in May. I'm not sure if I will be able to plan my trip around that, the end of school and all, but I hope to still meet up with him while there. If he's not in France - sigh.

Robin,
This is indeed a marvelous painting. I love the colors of the buildings, the windows and the positions of the figures, especially of the gentleman looking out over the sidewalk. A good story in this one!
Respectfully,
Carol Flatt
