New York Peddling Trip

This past week was an adventure in street peddling. It went very well! Lots of people purchased my landscapes, and I met a ton of interesting people. Peddling locations included the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, Parkchester Station in the Bronx, and Canal St. in SOHO. Here are some images from my trip.
The Row of Artists Setting Up Early Saturday Morning in Front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

My Display at the MET. Note the easel. I do plain air paintings as I sell.

Here is a progression of the plein air painting process:

The Watercolor Wash

Finished Work with Colored Pencil Detail

This piece, Parkchester Station, was purchased immediately by a delightful man who was a woodcarver.

 And, here are some more 5"x7," colored pencil and watercolor, plein air pieces made on the trip:

Red Umbrellas at the MET

 The Steps of the Met

Trees at the Entrance of the Met.

I was working of Trees at the Entrance of the Met when an English gentleman came up and asked me if I could put him in the image. I did, and he purchased it. 

So, thank you, NY! Miss you lots!
