IL Porto South Street Seaport NYC

Hi all,
   Just back from a fabulous relaxing weekend with friends in Jacksonville Beach  and looking forward to getting my photos onto the computer to see all my new reference photos  and really take a closer look to see what I have to work with.
  When you get a chance to relax and be quiet for a bit , have lunch with a friend , take a walk and really look around you there is such a joy and excitement in the  little things around you that you never saw before.  I have lived in New york City for 13 years now and have walked past this restaurant numerous times however on this particular day while looking for a place to have lunch with a friend it really popped out. The umbrellas, the people , the colors,  the movement of the waiters , the tables and chairs, the light and shadows , all of it. This painting is a result of that days adventure and I hope you enjoy seeing it and look around your world a titch differently today as a result.

   This watercolor is available  and is 8"x10" .  Enjoy and have a blessed day.

Cafe de la Presse 2

 Here we are again visiting Cafe de la Presse .  I do recommend you try if if you happen to be in the San Francisco area and find yourself in need of a place for lunch or dinner.  I liked it so much that I went back for dinner  as I just loved the atmosphere . It did not disappoint and gave me another chance to sketch and take a few pics.

                   This 8"x10"  watercolor is available .   I hope you enjoy seeing another view.
