I'm not sure I've ever mentioned how much I love New York....and it might not be immediately obvious considering how much time I spend traveling and working elsewhere, but I LOVE New York City. It's an outstanding place to live as an artist, there's inspiration around every corner! Thankfully I have very patient friends who will wait as I take photographs for future watercolors. Sometimes it's because the light is JUST RIGHT or I see an outstanding composition, and don't have time to sketch it on the spot. I have a ton of photos just waiting to be painted, so whenever I'm feeling like painting and don't want to or can't go out sketching, I have a plethora of material to choose from! On one such day, I painted the watercolor below. This also marks the first time I was able to complete a painting and list it immediately in my Etsy store!
