Sports Page


I'm not sure why I automatically named this 'Sports Page', except that growing up in a sports-fanatic family I have this assumption that whenever a guy is riveted to the paper like the one here, he must be checking on the results of a game. One of the great things about the NYC subway is that you catch everyone just being who they are, sequestered in one tiny area, a total cross section of all types. Everyone needs to get somewhere, and the subway one way to do it. It also happens to be great theatre for the lurking artist.

Thanks for the nice input. This painting has actually been kicking around for a while, but i always felt something was missing because there was no figure where the beams pointed to and the column was. So I painted in that wall streeter guy and voila - composition fixed. that was back in the day before i worked my compositions out before painting. now i do a b/w value sketch first so this kinda stuff gets worked out from the beginning. live and learn.
