Mother and Son

Mother  oil on linen   8x8
Son  oil on linen 8x8

This  mother and son  were out on a cold  NYC day. Of course you wouldn't know they were in NY because I decided to not place them in Manhattan. I was more interested in them, as oppose to the city. There was something isolated about the two even though they were together. I thought they would work well out on what looks like an icy lake in Minnesota.

Top Hat , a Dreamer and time to Surrender

This piece is "Surrender ",  20"x 20" oil on linen. It is based on a musician I knew at what seems like a  lifetime ago. It was at the point when he finally decided to let the dream go. He never did become that "star" but I hear through the grapevine that he invented some board game and made a ton of money. Go figure!

This piece "Dreamer" is pencil on mylar mounted on a board with an oil color wash. Well the title says it all.

Here is a small painting from a series of pieces I am working on involving a top hat. This piece is 8"x8"  oil on linen and is titled of course,  Top Hat.
