Every night, New York’s Empire State Building changes the colors of its tower lights to reflect various occasions and organizations. Their spectacular Valentine’s Day display began last night, complete with lights simulating a beating heart and a rotating array of romance-inspired colors, including hot pink. I couldn’t resist making this iPad painting of a pink Empire State […]
From time to time, I like to take a break from color and paint with a monochromatic palette. This self-imposed limitation forces me to focus exclusively on light and shadow. Here are a couple of new Paris paintings in black and white – classic Parisian scenes of the Eiffel Tower and a bridge on the […]
I love the dramatic swoop of the feather on these black evening shoes. In this watercolor painting I chose a dark purple background to enhance the sense of drama. Custom framed and canvas prints of this painting as well as other shoe art prints are available in my print shop.

These whimsical vintage 1960s Roger Vivier black pumps were the inspiration for a new watercolor fashion illustration.
I was so moved by the Alexander McQueen Exhibit at the Met Museum of Art in NYC . His designs struck me as self portraits as much as fashion, a medium usually associated with artifice. This watercolor is of a gown from the 2001 VOSS collection, made of red and black ostrich feathers and glass […]
Two new birds in flight paintings in soft shades of gray and blue watercolor.
Inspired by Coco Chanel, the 20th century fashion icon. I achieved the white on black effect by starting with a watercolor painting on paper; scanning it; then inverting the digital image in Photoshop, so that the values are reversed.
