A bonus of living in New York City, when you love to paint nocturnes, is the never ending cycle of Broadway shows with brilliant and completely sketchable marqees. Here are a handful I've done that I haven't posted yet! They are all very different sizes and I took diff...

I spent the last two weeks of August in Connecticut working in East Haddam, painting scenery for Goodspeed Musicals. Aside from getting to work in a great shop with lovely people and see my friends who live up in Connecticut, it also gave me the opportunity to paint sc...

Sometimes, I get to paint really fun things for really great people. My friend Joey contacted me about this commission for his wife; they met in New York and have fond memories of the apartment building she was living in at the time (especially since they had their fir...

A couple of months ago I did this great little commission, which happened to be a lovely addition to my Broadway nocturne collection! This one is of the Neil Simon theatre, while Angels and America was occupying it.

The past couple of months have been bonkers, and I now have a lot of art to catch up on! To start, here are two paintings I did for an art show I'm in. It's hanging at the Collier West Annex through August 4th, on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn.

Recently I went on a bit of a theatre-painting spree! I still have a few more marquees in mind to paint, but I love doing these little nocturnes! Here's the Shubert Theatre (housing Hello Dolly) and the Richard Rogers housing Hamilton.

I was dropping off a commission last week with a customer (you'll have to stay tuned for a post on that in a few weeks!) and decided to take advantage of the nice weather and paint a nocturne. I've been thinking about doing a night painting of Carnegie Hall for ages (s...

I've painted the Flat Iron Building before, but I think I have a new favorite. I was walking down Broadway, enjoying the unseasonably warm weather, and reached 23rd when the sun was already pretty much gone. The beautiful lighting on one of my favorite New York landmar...

On the 28th instead of a workshop and a demo I had two workshops, so it was a long day of sketching! I skipped waking up early (clearly came to my senses that doing BOTH an early morning sketch AND a nocturne might not be the most advisable choice), and started the day...
