Looking uptown, Evening

6tag_040916-192124

This painting is the first of a pair commissioned recently for clients who had met and lived for a few years in the city. This view includes the lovely Bryant Park in the foreground, hemmed in by a cluster of  dramatic verticals. The large open expanse of Central Park can be seen in the distance, top right. Further away is the George Washington Bridge illuminated by the setting sun. The tall, irregular yet graceful tower in the foreground is home to the Bank of America and is commonly known as ‘The Boat’. As with a growing number of businesses in the city, this building boasts beehives which in turn may be contributing to a rise in unwelcome swarms (although I’d love to give the honey a taste!)
