The Clarendon Cup was a bike race, which I THINK (not positive) is now the Air Force Classic. It used to be held in the Clarendon neighborhood of Arlington and the people in this oil painting were waiting for the racers to come by. It's, like all my work, based on a photo I took at the event. The building behind the folks has been replaced with something taller and British Food and Goodies has relocated down the street.

I love taking photos in museums and occasionally they lead to paintings. This painting is of my best friend, Joelle Fishkin, looking at a sculpture in the Rodin Museum in Paris on a trip we took many years ago. Oil.
This one is based on a visit to Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Oil, 2x26.

These two paintings depict the same barn, which is on my friend Harriet's property in Highland County, Va. (I've actually painted it a third time from another view, but I'm not satisfied with that painting, unfortunately, so I won't show it.) I worked from photos that I took. It was early December in both instances, and in the second painting, a light snow had fallen. Both are oil paintings, although for the first one, I worked my first layer in acrylic. Both paintings were purchased by good friends.
