"After Boxing". 30 x 40" oil on canvas painting of a dear friend who was gracious enough to alow me follow him to one of his boxing sessions where he boxed to exhaustion so I could gather enough material for this composition. #somber #urbanart #oilpainting #painting #painter #landscapeartist #instaart #currentmood #solitude #artist #art #gallery #artoftheday #plein #pleinair #johnkosta #johnkostaart

"The Queen of Nicaragua". 18 x 24" oil on canvas from today's painting session at Da Center for the Arts in Pomona. When I first saw her in the lobby looking at her cell phone I was unsure about the painting session. But once she sat to pose she instantly became the Queen of Nicaragua! So noble and an excellent model!!!

"The Immigrant". 11x14" oil on birch panel from today's plein air Monday painting sessions at Da Center for the Arts in Pomona. I especially like the somber feeling of the subject and the black and yellow use of color. Enjoy! #immigrants #immigration #urbanart #oilpainting #painting #painter #landscapeartist #instaart #currentmood #solitude #artist #art #gallery #artoftheday #plein #pleinair #johnkosta #johnkostaart

"Being Held". 24x36" oil on canvas, my most recent painting of the beautiful orchid that lives in our dining room. It is funny how paintings evolve. This painting gave me much so much grief that I totally wanted to give up on it many times. But like anything worthwhile and after sticking to it, it eventually came together quite nicely. I especially like the somber colors and the contrast of the huge masculine hands gently holding the frail sensual flowers. Enjoy! #floral #orchid #orchids #urbanart #oilpainting #painting #painter #landscapeartist #instaart #currentmood #solitude #artist #art #gallery #artoftheday #plein #pleinair #johnkosta #johnkostaart

"The Big Man". 12"x 14" oil on birch panel. At the Intercontinental Hotel in Chicago and wanted to paint but it was rainy outside so I settled for plein air painting their historic indoor pool. The Big Man came by at the last minute and fell asleep covering himself in a yellow towel perfect timing to add him as a focal point. #intercontinentalhotel #chicago #swimming #plein_air_forum #pleinairpowerhouse #urbanart #oilpainting #painting #painter #landscapeartist #instaart #currentmood #solitude #artist #art #gallery #artoftheday #plein #pleinair #johnkosta #johnkostaart
