A Cold Days Clutter - © Christopher Greco

"A Cold Days Clutter"
12x9"" oil on Arches Paper.
Too cold to paint outside. The overloaded coat stand, a section of an old Florida painting with the flowers our son in law gave to my wife and Olivia's tea cup and saucer and I was in business.

S'November - © Christopher Greco

Approx. 9 x12" oil on Arches Paper.
This spot is directly across the street from my house. The temperature was hovering around 12°...I only lasted about 30 minutes, including the run back inside. It is strange to see this much snow while there are still leaves on so many trees.  The rest of the painting was done in my studio, after I thawed out.

Hot Spot on a Cold Day - © Christopher Greco

"Hot Spot on a Cold Day"
7x9" oil on a gesso board.
It was a bright and brilliant day, after the first snowstorm of the season. Our cat, Ginger found some warmth in front of the garage.
I started with a rough sketch, followed with an orange and blue wash in. The next step was to begin blocking in color,  the rest of the time was spent fixing it as best I could.

P B and J, Deconstructed - © Christopher Greco- SOLD

"P B and J, Deconstructed"
12x12" oil on masonite panel.
It seems that nearly every daily painter or "realist" has painted a peanut butter and jelly is my version. The cool light, was from a south facing window on a gray day.

An Arrangement On West 33 - © Christopher Greco

"An Arrangement On West 33"
11x14" oil on canvas.
When I am painting, I must have a very lost or forlorn expression on my face because someone always stops and wants to tell me about Jesus.
I started this painting by blocking everything in using Yellow Ochre and Ultramarine Blue. My plan was to have some of it show through the additional layers of paint and some of it would mix into the added didn't really work out that way as I kept repainting over the top and the applications of paint became more and more opaque with a heavy impasto in some areas.

A lesson learned ...don't set up near a church, along side a thrift store on a Sunday.
