I’m always searching for something inspiring to paint. Very
often the plain and ordinary places, like the one below located across the
street from my local COSTCO store, catch my attention and bring me an idea for
the new paintings.
I have not been very active with my art lately. My regular work takes all the time. Anyway I managed to finish a few commissioned paintings. Here is one of them with famous fire house on Bowery street in Little Italy, Manhattan.
Lately Ive been doing mostly commissions. Many of them are very interesting, challenging and rewarding. That's keeps me busy and happy. Recently I've started new series of
small 8x10 paintings. I haven't done any new work in large format except of this one. Quite
accidently I finished it when DOW
reached new all-time high 15000.
This painting initially had been started as a commission
with Old New York scene, but in a
process something went not the way I expected and I ended up doing the new
painting for that commission.

I didn't update my blog for a while. I’d been working on this painting for a couple of months. It was a commissioned piece and my largest painting to date. It’s more detailed version of small painting “Toad Hall” I had done last year. Thanks to my husband who built up a special easel for this giant. and, when it was finished ,rented a van to deliver it, since it was not fitting even into SUV.
Thanks God It was localNJ, otherwise I have no idea how I could pack it up and ship it out. The customers were a real pleasure to work with, very nice and patient. They were very pleased with final result. Thank you Eddy and Jennifer.
Also I have new 8x10" paintings. I will start posting them on Monday
