     Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art organizations in the United States. This gem is one of my favorite places in Manhattan.

      I was dropping off a painting at one of their juried shows and walked by their lovely dining room- feeling the echoes of the past and seeing the lovely lighting - this image stayed in my head for a while until I could not hold it in any longer and had to find the time to paint it!

    La Matin- The Salmagundi Club

    Love the atmosphere of this painting! Everything about it is stunning!

    Feel like I've been here before!

    Loose strokes so well placed, a huge range of values, and the illusion of light sweeping in across the tables creates a powerful effect -- that I know this room and I've been here before!

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
