New York, New York

I escaped the studio for a few days to take in some of my favourite paintings in New York!
I can't resist an American landscape so was very excited to see a couple of Hopper's and some Winslow Homer's at the Met.

'From Williamsburg Bridge', Edward Hopper

'The Light House at Two Lights', Edward Hopper

'Cannon Rock', Winslow Homer
'Maine Coast', Winslow Homer
'Moonlight, Wood Island Light', Winslow Homer

I was also introduced to the Still Life's of William Michael Harnett who made these stunning Trompe L'Oeil paintings. These had caught my eye as I was pondering over making some contemporary Still Life's in the future.

'Still Life-Violin and Music', William M. Harnett

Now it's time to get my head down again as Deadlines are looming and my break has put me on the back foot.

Only one month to go before the Arts Trail starts!
