Six New Paintings (well, five new and one in progress)

Here are some new figurative paintings finished over this past week. I was going for quick, loose, expressive. These are part of a new series that I'm working on based on street scene photographs and sketches I've done in New York and Chicago. "Pursed" is still a work in progress.

Headphones and Crowd, acrylic on canvas panel, 14x18, 2009, $150

Yellow Dress, acrylic on canvas paper (framed), 12x16, 2009

Blonde Cell Phone, acrylic on canvas paper (framed), 12x16, 2009

Heading to the Subway, acrylic on canvas paper (framed), 12x16, 2009

Pursed, acrylic on panel (work in progress), 2009

This water tanks painting is an imaginary scene that I guess could have existed along the shore of Lake Michigan or the River in Chicago's industrial heyday.
