Landscape Paintings 

These paintings were constructed after looking at buildings around my Brooklyn neighborhood.  In these paintings, I was not interested in displaying buildings but created stylized images of buildings, trees, and pavements.  Like other paintings, these works are large, shaped oils on canvas that hang from the wall down onto the floor.  


Oil On Canvas with Mesh

8' X 4.5'


This landscape painting is an illustration of a city night scene.  I was interested in using blues, greens, reds, and purples to create this evening scene.  Again I chose to use a dark mesh to enhance the feeling of darkness.


"Snowy Rooftops"

Oil On Canvas with Mesh

9' X 4.5'



This is a winter scene representing buildings with geometric rooftops and stylized tree imagery.  This painting incorporates the white mesh highlighting the element of snow.

"Winter Storm"

Oil On Canvas with Mesh

7.5' X 4.5'



I was still fascinated with buildings in Brooklyn, particularly in winter.  This painting not only shows the building but also winter clouds and footprints (my actual footprints) in the snow.  I was interested in presenting the rooftops as dominating white geometric shapes.  It was also important to add another element to add to the imagery of snow, in this case, the white mesh.

"Brooklyn Streets"

Oil On Canvas

9' X 3.5'



This painting was from a study of Brooklyn streets.  The hot black summer streets where buildings are butted up against one another

"Brooklyn Brick"

Oil On Canvas with Bricks

6' X 4.5'

I decided to paint this 3-panel painting while studying brick buildings in Brooklyn.  I was struck by the various colors of the building from yellows, reds, and browns.  The bricks are constructed out of Styrofoam and painted to simulate bricks
