    Description

     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!

    Love this portrait of Robin Williams. It conveys the warmth and personality of this amazing guy so well.

    This artist sure had fun painting this scene of the Universe! Reading the story with the painting, you can see how the process of painting is such a joy, and the artist actually goes on this journey outside the every day world to travel among galaxies and stars. Isn't that the real point to painting?

    Although the title evokes something completely different for me, the colors, values, drawing and movement in this piece are wonderful!

    Wonderful Native Indian portrait, with an amazing sense of movement and spontaneity, yet beautifully executed with a perfect underlying drawing -- difficult to achieve proportional correctness with respect to the angle of view. Colors washes and accent lines add interest and the upward flow really does convey the feeling of pride and purpose.

    I love this night scene depicting Native Indians gliding in stealth across this slow moving waterway in their bark canoe. The angles of the bank and water reeds create a wonderful sense of depth. The composition is excellent, leading to a sense of a story by the placement of elements; the colors -- vibrate with interest from the range of deep blues to the red tinges of color on the canoe.
