Brooklyn Snow Day

Brooklyn Snow Day. 24" x 30". Painted in little over 2 hours in oil on found board in the spirit of the Ashcan School style of painting.



The Ashcan School Movement was an early 20th Century American artistic movement portraying daily life in New York City. Using gestural strokes, the Ashcan artists concentrated on the vitality and energy of the growing city teeming with immigrants and new industry.


Corner Bistro 15" x 15". Acrylic on re-purposed wooden board. Painted from a photo taken by Nick Puglisi.
