Three Trees 2007-2010

This series was done while maintaining my studio practice on West 11th Street in Manhattan. A small space in the basement of a tenement building lent itself to plein air painting as I was eager to emerge if the weather permitted . During my time there I watched the Hudson River Park take shape along the water's edge. These three Zelkova trees were a constant source of inspiration as were the views of the water and New Jersey.
