Milwaukee River Downtown

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 20x24
I grew up in the city of Milwaukee and I love to paint the city at night. This is a view of the Milwaukee River looking north. The revival of the city's downtown Riverwalk has added a vibrant new feel to the area and the Third Ward District pulsates with energy and nightlife. It is also home to the Milwaukee Institute of art and design, bars, outdoor cafes and galleries, including Katie Gingrass Gallery which represents yours truly.

Nor'easter in New York city

“God hates us!” the New York Post said in a front-page headline.

These are the headlines regarding the Northeaster of November 2012. I wanted to capture the atmosphere of the unexpected snow blanketing the city of New York and see the beauty even in an ugly weather event.
