  • Leo Kogan, Painter

    [portfolio_slideshow size=large autoplay=false random=true centered=true carousel=true navstyle=graphical navpos=top pagerstyle=thumbs pagerpos=bottom] “In the work of Leo Kogan everything is in motion and at the same time everything stands still. Lights flicker, dials spin wildly, motors roar and speakers are pounding. Everything we see has made a journey, it has a source and a goal and at…

  • Addison Rooftops

    Making time for the studio a success! Much better than complaining about not having time to paint. Check out the posts below to see how this painting progressed. Also, finally figured out that I had my exposure setting way too low on my camera and that was why everything was so dark! Will re-shoot next…

  • Burger King (revisited)

    , , ,

    A new painting, at last! I had painted this scene about 7 years ago, but cropped and with different figures. It is interesting to revisit the old problems and see how I worked things out before – what changes in importance. It’s still hard to paint circles, by jove. You can see the older Burger…

  • New Studio at the Cornelia Arts Building


    Beginning November 2009 my studio (#109) will be located at the Cornelia Arts Building, 1800 W. Cornelia, and open by appointment. The building has a long history serving as an incubator for local artists and artisans and I am looking forward to a computer/cat/chore free zone so I can get back to making art. The…

  • “New Cleaners”

    , , ,

    This is the dry cleaner opposite the bus-stop on Damen Ave. and Grace. Sign painting is like surgery; you’ve got to have a steady hand and complete confidence in where you’re going with that loaded brush. I have not mastered sign painting – but – neither am I a sign painter. (Previous Shot)

  • “Drive-thru”, Wendy’s on Lawrence Ave., Chicago

    , , , ,

    This painting relates to the fast-food joints I’ve done in the past and I have a few more I’d like to do. I have a good shot of “Church’s” I took while in Louisiana and there are some pretty awesome all-night spots here in Chicago.

  • Portrait of Andrew Steiner

    , , ,

    A new portrait. This is from a photo I took of my friend Andrew outside of Trader Joe’s. He has a very masculine presence that was fun to work with – I exaggerated the brutish quality in his hand but the attitudinous glare is all Andy.

  • House on Damen

    , , ,

    I think it’s finished. The iron gate is probably the least accurate drawing part – but accuracy isn’t everything. Next on the docket – another portrait- I think. Details: oil/canvas, 30″ x 40″

  • Rockwell Station, Winter Scene

    , , ,

    Fresh off the easel. A painting I started over a year ago and had to scrap once I realized it needed to be painted on a larger canvas (this one is 38″ x 60″). Sometimes, you just have to start back at the beginning.
