Harlem Meer, 11.05.12

By Sketches

The meer is all boarded up with chainlink as a response to hurricane Sandy.  I attempted to stop by last week but it was impassable.  There was some talk of going last Saturday but the 20 degree windchill temps made sitting in the pre-dawn shade less than enviable.  I tapped…

I co-curated an exhibition of Fanny Brennan paintings at Leigh Morse Fine Arts.  The opening for “Fanny Brennan Retrospective” was last night and despite the aftermath of hurricane Sandy, the event was flush with revelers and a good time. The artist’s son and longtime friend of mine, Richard Brennan, and…

Harlem Meer, 10.27.12

The world is in … Tumult?  A still in the air as the humidity rises and a Low pressure system holds the tri-state hostage in anticipation of the Frankenstorm approaching on Monday.  So, unseasonably warm Autumn weather.  Gray skies.  Flat lighting.  The trees continue their fiery march as green burns…

Harlem Meer, 10.20.12

The tide is turning.  For the better, i think.  Perhaps a bad metaphor… doesn’t that thing come in and go out twice a day? Denning loaned me her incredibly precious “Claude Lorrain: The Painter as Draftsman” (rare tome) and i’ve been poring over it.  Actually, it’s Lorrain’s sketches that pushed…

Inching forward with some style changes.  Adding more wash and playing with that.  Here’s three drawings from a couple of days this week.  The last two from today when Denning and I went out for a brisk Autumnal morning and promptly sat in the shade for two hours.  Well, that…

The last good day of Autumn?  Of 2012?  The weather’s going to take a dive here in the next few hours and the leaves will explode and the world will go quiet with the onset of grey.  Until then though, sweaters off and squint into the glare that beats through…

Harlem Meer, 09.30.12

Harlem Meer on a typical autumn day.  Blue skies and warm with sudden chances for clouds and a civilized rain.  Rather than overloading this blog with too-frequent posts, i’m going to pare back after today.  Show landmarks and issues rather than a wave of show-n-tell. Today I got a small…

I was sitting in the Brandy Library enjoying a cocktail after last night’s Alex Kanevsky lecture.  My friend and I were talking about landscape painting and what got me there (here?).  We talked about Loraine… Turner… Inness… Kanevsky… Fowkes and it sort of dawned on me that i needed to…
