Study, Little Italy Morning, oil on canvas

My education began in music before I delved into art. With both disciplines, practice makes perfect. In music, there are études that form the technical foundation of performing more elaborate pieces. In art, the analogous concept is a "study."

When I find a motif that I really like, I'm happy to take a practice run at it in the form of a small composition and then revisit it in a larger format. In fact, you'll see that this piece was expanded into a much larger custom painting for a client....

I create a fair number of studies in my work, often with the intention of going back to them. But like a dog chasing a butterfly across a meadow, I tend to wander off in pursuit of new ideas and I don't often go back to these studies because I'm onto the next great thing.

I really liked this composition from Lower Manhattan because of the beautiful morning light and dramatic shadows, combined with the vibrant red bricks. I originally painted this in a very small format and then came back to it for this panoramic take on the idea.
