Looking out on Lafayette




Concrete Jungle

Another painting from my visit to NYC. This is a view out onto Lafayette Street from my friend's place on Great Jones in the lower east side. I just love painting these windows, the color of the window reflections changed from orange to blue as you moved up the building. I can't help but sing that Alicia Keys song when I think of New York. "...concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do... when you're in New York..."

Yes, I like the colors too. It also has a nice abstract quality which I also like.

Your cityscapes are unparalleled Ann. This is another beauty and I too like how the suns reflections change the color of the windows as you move up the building. Just beautiful!
