Subway Series, etc.

Two more entries for the Subway Series. I am using mechanical pencils exclusively now. I can't believe how many years I spent drawing with traditional pencils that needed sharpening every two minutes! Never again. Not only is there no need for sharpening of these things, but you can get a package of six at the dollar store for, of course, one dollar!


 Some Recent Paintings
I've been in a little bit of a slump lately due to a variety of issues, but I've had a bit of a boost after a recent sale. This is always a great way to get inspired to work more, and I wish it happened more often, but you can't wait around to feel a sense of purpose to make art. It has to be something you do every day, without fail! Here is a small painting appropriate for this time of year.

"Fall" (acrylic on paper)

This one is of the marsh area near Jones Beach, one of my favorite areas to go to, and a great spot to paint, especially during the cooler months. I hope to get out there more often in the next month, but not having my own car available makes it a little difficult. But there are always options.

"Expanse" (acrylic on paper)
