While we were in New York City a few weekends ago, I took a bunch of photos as inspiration for new paintings. It's pretty easy for me to get inspired in New York. This painting was done from a photo I took looking out the back window of my friend's loft. I painted it in one sitting at my art class last night. (I guess that is technically considered alla prima?) I really prefer to keep working at a painting while it's still wet. Especially with the thickness of the paint that I use. I'm excited to do more of these.

Ann, this look great. I agree with Kim, it needs to be on a real big canvas.
