Revision and Central Park South

photo-25

Time for a website revision. Additionally I’m having lots of fun on my latest work, Central Park South. Sad horses stand, parked on this street and work daily to haul tourist through Central Park. I personally think the tourists should walk and enjoy the park while getting some exercise. I have yet to walk by those horses and feel any of them are glad to be there….

Daniel Smith Contest

In keeping with my goal to get my work out there, I entered Pachydermis, my elephant painting, in their weekly contest.  It’s a get out the vote-type contest so I don’t know if it will go anywhere but it’s continuing towards the goal.  Painting continues on the horse with the harness.
