"Through the Arch" On Auction this Sunday March 11th

"Through the Arch" 14x11 oil on gessoboard
     This is the third painting I did in my Washington Square series.  For those of you who are not familiar with the Washington Square Arch it is located in Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village which is a neighborhood in lower Manhattan.  As you look through the arch you are looking up 5th Avenue.  The Empire State Building is seen in the distance and is located at 5th Avenue at 34th Street.  Here 5th Avenue ends in Waverly Place which runs across it.  An ealier painting I showed you was titled "5th and Waverly" and If you go back to August or September in the Archives list you can see that painting progressing step by step.  The golden summer morning light is quite as beautiful in New York as anywhere else.  I think it gives a different more sympathetic view of the City.
       This painting comes up for auction at the second auction in the 2012 Salmagundi Club Spring Auction series.  The auction starts promptly at 2:00 PM this coming Sunday, March 11th.  If you are a regular reader then you may be tired of hearing about the auction.  However, I do want to keep you informed.  The auction takes place live at the Salmagundi Club, 47 5th Avenue and at the same time online at Live Auctioneers  As I learned from last Friday's auction Live Auctioneers provides a screen for viewing the actual auction and there are buttons to push should you wish to make a bid.  Pre auction bids are already being accepted.  The quickest way to get to the Salmagundi Auction and view all the paintings is to go to the Salmagundi link I gave you and on the left side of the opening page you will see a listing for SCNY Spring Auction.  Just hit info and the remaining two auction pages come up.  "Through the Arch" is lot #81. 
I hope it is a successful as "Primal" was last Friday!
