Big Meadow

I finally got the paintings down from the A-Space and was able to photograph Big Meadow. About 75% of the creation process for this piece is chronicled on Lester Martin's YouTube channel in the series, How To Paint A Masterpiece.

Muddy Little Secrets

Below are 3 works in progress from Five Miles From Times Square, Muddy Little Secrets I, II, and III. In one or two older posts I have the photos from which these paintings are done, so feel free to check them out for accuracy.

I should have #1 done in about 2 or 3 more sittings, and I plan on entering it into a juried show at Off The Wall Gallery in Philadelphia. The show is called Deja Vu: Art and Memory and I think a cross section of an old landfill fits the theme rather well.
