Here come the New York paintings! I took this from the window of the incredible apartment we had for our last trip to New York. Right at the corner of 59th St and Fifth Avenue, with windows looking out over Central Park, the Plaza Hotel, and of course Fifth Avenue, straight down to the Empire State Building. In an apartment like that you don't need art on the walls, because Manhattan is itself an ever-changing and ever-fascinating work of art.

More to come. But I gotta say, so far this is my favorite of the batch.
It's 8 x 10 inch oil on board, ready for framing.

  1. amy, am a fan of your blog. we have been looking for a legit apartment for vacation rental in nyc. do you give out the info from your rental? thanks if so. if not keep writing, always something interesting from you.

  2. I love this painting – a night scene is not easy – I like how the lights glow. I also like your stylized interpretation of the taxis. . . very nice –
