In the Spotlight, Washington Square

9 x 12 Oil on Gessobord

I painted a smaller version of this quite a while ago, but never got to take it home from the framer because it sold really fast.  So, I decided to do it again in a slightly larger format.  All of the different colored shadows from the spotlights at Washington Square Park were a challenge but I'm happy with it, and that's what attracted me to this scene.  I probably have said this before...I know I have....but there was always so much going on in the Village when we lived there, and I was glad to see that music is still a part of the experience even though most of the cafes are gone.  I still miss the old Figaro's; sitting at the outdoor tables, drinking tea or coffee, and watching the great people who made the Village home.  It was a little village inside of NYC. There was nothing like it :-)


  1. Very good work, have movement and rhythm musicians, pretty well painted scene.
