Hawaii Watercolor Society Best of Show Award
This painting is based on sketches derived from several shops
I used to pass in the East and West village sections of Manhattan.
I would pass these places and knew that someday I would do something
with them, but it took a long time to get there. I wanted the painting
to have a sense of time passing by, the sense of being left alone
in the moment in a strange and beautiful place.
The homeless fellow in the corner is holding a sketchpad. Consider
it a clue to his identity.
