Last evening I attended “A Celebration of Visual Art” an art exhibit and reception presented by The Osler Society of the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and discovered my art had won Second Place. Below are the two monotypes. You all have seen them before and I’m sure you remember.

Monotype; Arches printmaking paper; oil based printing ink; etching press. Referred to iPad sketches made while in Penn Station waiting for a train home.

This monotype refers to a drawing I did while having breakfast in Central Market in Penn Station. I sketched a lot there. I read a lot there. It was a nice place to hang out – comfortable seating and fresh food – but it has been replaced with a shiny new, different place with tiny backless seating and my head says “Bleh” whenever I pass by. Bleh.
