Treedancers Skateboard

So I finished my skateboard! You can see where I went from the original sketch. The bottom of the board has some tree roots on it that are kind of obscured by the bent end of the board. It was painted in glazes of acrylics and some shellac. I tend to use a good bit of shellac I suppose. I think it's an underused medium. If you're in NYC on Thursday August 30, come down to the show at Avenue.A. My friend Rosa's skateboard will be hanging in the show as well. The flyer with all of the details is in a previous post. This skateboard is for sale as well.

Next weekend we're heading off on vacation and I'm bringing my watercolors. Hopefully I'll have some lovely plein air island paintings for you when I get back.

So I just realized that I've been working on things and didn't post new work yet for this past week. So to make up for's 2! I've been working on the skateboard painting for this other art show and am posting the original sketch. It's decidedly not something you'd normally see on a skateboard but there were no rules so I'm painting it as I want. In this sketch I've combined figures of dancers to create a gnarled, aged-looking tree. You'll see how this turns out in a later blog.

The second sketch is for my next equine watercolor. A trainer and horse are walking away after longeing. I'll probably paint this sometime in September.

Barrel Racer watercolor painting

This week's painting is an 8 by 10 in. of a barrel racer. Even though I don't ride western, it's always fun to watch the speed and agility of the horse and rider as they race around the barrels. My horse Rose even likes to try it every once in awhile. Hope you enjoy this week's painting. It's for sale for $110. Please contact me if you're interested.
Check back next week. I hope to have the skateboard started for the show that's at the end of August.

Avenue.A Art Show

Some of my abstract figure work is showing at the Avenue.A Japanese Restaurant Art Gallery at 103 Avenue A in New York. The opening was on Thursday August 2 and the show runs until the end of August. I attached a photo of what I have there. To see larger versions of these, you can go to my website at and click on the link for Drawing & Painting then the Figures link. And they're all for sale if you're interested.
Hanging in this show is:

Check it out if you're in the area. They have really great sushi there too. :)

My work will also be in the show after this on August 30. The flyer is below. I'll be painting a skateboard. It should be fun! I'll upload a pic once I have it done.
