      Central Park West borders Central Park on 
the West side with many attractions just inside
the walls like Strawberry Fields and just outside

       This is the Trefoil Bridge in Central Park which 
was made somewhat famous as one of the locations
used in the hilarious comedy, "Out of Towners" 
staring Jack Lemmon. That movie, although very
funny, painted a very unattractive picture of New 
York City.

        The snack stands are all over Central Park
and some are very specialized, but then there are 
some that have too much of a choice.

        Central Park has many underpasses that dot the
park, but the carved stone ones are the most fun to paint.

      This was a great little stream I visited back
in 2005 or so. It was sandy and rocky at the same
time without one trying to outdo the other.

        Sage of many varieties dot the landscape of
the Grand Canyon. It's amazing that they can find
nourishment to grow out of rocks.

in Gilbert is a rustic suburb called Apache Junction. It lies just below
the Western Face of Superstition Mountain.

                 "Duck Rock Revisited"
                       11" x 14" original oil on panel 

                                    Click here to bid on eBay

     This is the famous "Duck Rock" on the South
Rim of the Grand Canyon. I've painted it many times
in other compositions and sizes. The light has to creep 
around it a little more to really start looking like a duck.

         A few years ago I visited Sedona for about 
the fourth time, but this time it was in January 
and I was lucky enough to see Oak Creek dusted
with a thin layer of snow. It didn't last too long 
though, the snow turned to rain and soon it was
gone.

       The front of the New York City Public Library
is guarded by two carved lions, Patience and Fortitude.
They were renamed by Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia in the 
1930's in the depths of the Depression. They were 
 originally named Astor and Lenox after the Libraries
founders.

          "Caught in the Headlights"
                  12" x 16" original oil on panel 


     This is a New York City scene of one of the 
many snack carts that are all over the city, ready
to ruin your dinner.
 
                 "Canyon Shadows"
                 11" x 14" original oil on panel

                               Click here to bid on eBay

     This scene of the Grand Canyon caught me eye
because of the hazy distance you feel from the clouds
shadowing the distant walls of the canyon.
