Since I missed the whollllllle holiday season, I didn't get to post the painting my family chose to use for their annual Christmas card! I thought it might be the Rockefeller Christmas tree from the previous year (that she was displeased I had done too late to use for...

After seeing the last movie of the summer in Bryant Park last year during my artist residency, I knew I wanted to make it to at least one this year! So, when I heard they were showing A League of Their Own (an old family favorite!) I invited some of my best gals and we...

One early December Friday afternoon between work and an event in the evening I decided to swing by Bryant Park for some sketching. Their winter village and skating rink had been erected, but to my surprise the tree lighting was that night so no one was allowed on the r...

Early on, I knew I wanted to do a 360 degree panorama of the park. This posed some challenges, like the fact that I've never done something like that before. Also that the perspective changes as you turn. Also that I wanted to draw it from a fictionally far distance aw...

 I learned early on in my time at the park that sitting near the carousel is a joy, because it spouts French music and it feels like a tiny bit of Paris in New York. The carousel itself is hard to paint, not only because it's top is taller than you'd think, but because...

Even though I tend to edit people out of my paintings, I did a few all about people and some extra ones using them as a focus. 

This is an adorable family (I think two sisters and their children?) who were playing on the lawn my final afternoon.

Naturally, the NY Public Library is a huge presence from the park, so I couldn't let two weeks pass without painting it! You'll see it again in my huge panorama, but for now here's two paintings of the back of the library!

Here's a quick one, with just the corner of the...

A wonderful thing about instagram is that it gives viewers the opportunity to immediately comment on whatever you're posting. I noticed soon after my very first painting containing the American Radiator Building (one of my own favorite buildings in NYC, and the subject...

Throughout my two weeks at Bryant Park, basically whenever I didn't know what I wanted to paint next I would just paint the fountain. As a result, I ended up with several versions of it, from a few different angles!

This was the first one I did, an early morning sketch...
