The Northern tip of Block Island,RI and view of downtown from Benefit Street,Providence, RI. Oil on panel, 16"x20", (watercolor versions can be found here and here).
The Artists Loop meeting last night was a pleasure, thank you to everyone for coming out. It was encouraging to meet so many interesting people, see familiar faces and here what you are all up to. *And thanks so much to Ed, the new librarian, who made the A/V equipment work perfectly, hooray! (His advice to remove the lense cap from the projector was particularly useful.)
16"x20", oil on cradled panel. These cityscapes feel forced to me compared with the florals. But I want to give myself a chance to find a playful attitude with the cityscapes which might mean putting up with some discomfort for the time being. But if the discomfort keeps me out of the studio, as it has for the last several days, then maybe its not such a good idea? Ahh, well...
I just realized that a client has been waiting patiently for a print order she placed a month ago. Whoops. She ordered this one of Providence from Prospect Park so I thought I'd make another Providence sketch to send along with it for her good behavior. From the intersection of Washington St. as it turns into Waterman St. and North Main in downtown Providence.
