2015, Oil on Hardboard, 7"x 5"
This is a scene that I happened upon during my quest for cannoli and cappuccino. The light show that is New York City at night is particularly evident in the cloud cover. In the '70's and '80's there were only a handful of buildings that were lit and the Empire State Building was the color of the evening. In recent years many other buildings have joined in, each with its own color palette. The result is a more neutral glow, and the color far usually much more subtle.
