Memorial Day

“These fallen heroes represent the character of a nation who has a long history of patriotism and honor – and a nation who has fought many battles to keep our country free from threats of terror.” Michael N. Castle.

Simple sketch of a cross and an American Flag representing those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to keep our nation free including my father who served in the U.S Army.

The Douglaston Club

The Douglaston Club is a private club in Little Neck, NY. We are completing a master plan for the club which is a unique and private yacht, tennis and pool club situated in the heart of the most desirably pleasant sections of New York City.  The club is only minutes away by train to Manhattan, but a world away in lifestyle. This quick sketch is of the front porch and I was drawn to the potted geraniums with small American flags.

Douglaston, New York

Arriving early for a meeting at another club in Douglaston, New York, I came across this wonderful side porch on a small local house. The porch was covered by a trellis supported by round Tuscan columns. The trellis was covered with wisteria that was on the verge of blooming.
