Work in progress - Houston St view of Katz's Deli in NYC.
Most paintings, I work evenly all over but for some, I complete sections as I work. On February Pharmacy, after completing the underpainting, I finished it off from right to left.
First stage of a new, large work - 48" x 30"

In progress, shortly after going into color.
Early sketch for fireworks scene in The Sound of All Things. The decision was later made to remove the background attractions and leave just the fireworks and crowd.
