How did you make this work:
The following series of paintings is my ode to New York City. Whether you are a local, a transplant, or simply a passerby, we all share the awe of experiencing one of the most incredible cities in the world. Personally, I owe NYC the opportunity to find myself too---both as a person and as an artist. Each of these paintings is a small vignette observed from my daily commutes and experiences.
