The Big Apple

Anyone who has spent time on the streets of NYC knows that its all about energy, movement, a cacophoany of swirling colors, a symphony of sounds. It's truly a feast for all the senses. Capturing that spirit is what makes painting the city so challenging. In my recent explorations of working texture into my paintings, I decided to tackle the city and see what would happen. Pastes, paints, gels, ink, paper, magazines, cardboard, stamping, stencils... I threw in everything but the kitchen sink. Thats kinda what NY is - its all right there, right in your face.
