     Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art organizations in the United States. This gem is one of my favorite places in Manhattan.

      I was dropping off a painting at one of their juried shows and walked by their lovely dining room- feeling the echoes of the past and seeing the lovely lighting - this image stayed in my head for a while until I could not hold it in any longer and had to find the time to paint it!

      If you are in NYC you must visit ~ and try the "stew" its amazing!

    La Matin- The Salmagundi Club

    Love the atmosphere of this painting! Everything about it is stunning!


    Feel like I've been here before!

    Loose strokes so well placed, a huge range of values, and the illusion of light sweeping in across the tables creates a powerful effect -- that I know this room and I've been here before!

    Welcoming Table

    You did it! artistically captured !

    Detail in Big Strokes

    This painting shows amazing detail (color, texture) within such beautiful loose brushstrokes. I love it!

    A Flowery Village

    This fanciful, flower lined village reminds me of a visit to Epcot Center in Florida a few years ago.

    Mangrove Roots

    A view of colorful underwater roots ordinarily hidden from sight takes on an abstract quality and I feel the rhythm created by the repeating shapes, patterns, colors and textures.

    From a Memory

    Can't you remember driving down this road? The artist creates that strong sense of such a memory with washes, few strokes and low value colors in a landscape painting that relies on keen attention to perspective drawing.
