About the Book
Twenty years ago, my wife and I moved from New York City to Central New York State, where I took a teaching position at Syracuse University. In the fall of 2011, we rented an apartment in New York, across the street from the Conservatory Garden and the Harlem Meer on the corner of 107th Street and Fifth Avenue, where we go on weekends. New York City, once our home, has now become a travel destination and the inspiration for this new series of paintings, which I have been working on for over four years.
The Central Park series consists of oil paintings ranging in size from 12” x 10” to 36” x 48”, plus over 90 small 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” plein air watercolors, which I paint in bound sketchbooks.
