5th avenue and central park west horse carriage rides

5th avenue in new york city has always been a major attraction for Tourist and city shoppers alike. On this one corner you have the apple store the Waldorf Astoria hotel and the new time warner building that includes a full mall. Central park is also a great place to walk around and enjoy the scenery. This oil painting was created during a busy winter day in new york city. It shows the traffic of the city that includes horse carriage rides police patrols and supply trucks making their daily deliveries.

I call this painting "tail gate" because of the close proximity of the traffic. This painting is about the horses of new york city. Most of the time horse stay in the stables of new york city without activity. Horse carriage rides give the horse a chance to display their strength and be active. I created this paintings in a impressionistic style. short to long brush strokes display areas of cool color and value structures that evoke the impression of a new york city horse carriage ride.

Columbus Circle Horses

living on the upper westside you see lots of inspiration for oil paintings. Horses carriage rides   have been popular for over 10 years in the columbus circle area. I had to take a traditional subject matter and paint horse in a more modern setting in the streets of New York.  The movement in the columbus circle area just south of the upper west side is breath taking. suddenly you are overwhelmed by the mixture of pedestrians, traffic and even horses that complete the manhattan street scenes. These columbus circle horses are big and strong. The beautiful animals walk with pride and conviction as if they know they are apart of New York Cities luxurious reputation. My oil painting of columbus circles horses will be a great discovery for any impressionism art collector to own.

Contemporary Artwork in Manhattan

          My most recent oil paintings are a series of colorful photomontages.  I started these paintings in my New York City studio  "1990's" by sketching a group of iconic faces in charcoal. I gathered reference photos from online sources to accurately render the realistic forms. I choose to use an analogous color palette to depict a joyous feeling throughout the painting. For a more aesthetic finish i splashed colors of paint over the faces. Characters from cartoon network's dragonball z and futurama are seen in the foreground of the painting along with other iconic faces.  My painting  "Trump Protesters" was inspired by jerome "wrath of medusa". Before i applied the oil paint to the canvas i sketch out two equilateral triangles in charcoal to place the figures on the canvas.  I sticked to the same story as jerome wrath of medusa to illustrate the trump protesters lost at sea. In the background is the presidential helicopter evading the tragic moment. My final painting in this series is called the "mystical dance". This painting is inspired by "edgar degas" the dance foyer at the opera. I used the same architectural structure of the piece and an analogous color scheme. I replace the figures with african dancers. The dancers are illustrated in a crescent displaying their figurative stance. Each dancer is wearing a unique mask that displays their social rank in the room. The figure that wears the white mask holds the highest rank.
