Don't Walk SOLD (Click here to view results on eBay)



Here is my first painting from a trip I took to New York City with my son Jobey. I knew ahead of time that I wanted to shoot simple street scenes of famous downtown locations and Central Park, and after sifting through thousands of photos I finally had to decide and just get painting. The problem is that there was just too much to choose from. New York is nothing like what I expected except for two things that I did hear once or twice. It doesn't sleep, and it is the greatest city in the world. I'll write more about that later. Click on the image for a larger view.

Mick,
This is really a spectacular painting, no kidding. You absolutely nailed the hazy atmosphere and the way the light bounces off buildings around the city. A great eye as usual. I love all your work but I think could be a very special series.

Hope you are well, all the best,
Todd
