Battery Park

8" x 6" oil on hardboard
Purchase "Battery Park"

I've been wanting to paint this scene for a while, but couldn't quite decide how to crop it. The vertical format I think is more appealing than my original compositions. I avoided it because it puts the horizon right smack in the middle, but now that it's done I kind of like the way the sky and water act as a divider between the warm greens in the trees and the cool greens on the ground.

  1. One of my favorite places, and one of my favorite paintings from you! I love the way you handled the various greens and show the trees in the distance.I too like the strip of sky and ocean. My mentor always said," learn the rules, then break them. " The bench looks very inviting.....fabulous!


I love to read your comments - thanks for your feedback!
