En Plein Air: Keep Off the Grass! (Oil, 9 x 12)

In addition to my sciatica problem, now I've got sinus and upper respiratory inflammation, which most probably, flared up from fatigue of the trip. Therefore, I didn't want to go too far away. When I was walking in Forest Hills Gardens, I noticed the sun shined from behind a row of condos and made the tree leaves and the orange plastic net fence stand out against the dark background. I decided to paint the scene. Again, I was experimenting with palette knives and it was completed in not quite an hour and a half.

Jazz Concert at Forest Hills Public Library

This afternoon at Forest Hills Public Library, there was a Jazz concert A Tribute to Stan Kenton's Ladies of Cool Jazz Vocalist, mainly 50s and 60s jazz. I loved it. To me, that's kind of music soothes the soul. I did a couple of sketches. The following are two of them.
