12 x 16 in  -  30 x 40 cm.    The photo that inspired this was taken in New York at the end of October.

In many ways this painting is a success in that it has come out well. But I do have a number of 'buts'. Amoung many other things, a good painting should make you believe that there is world beyond what is shown to you in the frame and this one doesn't.

There are a number of reasons why it doesn't happen. The biggest one is that while all the parts are OK in them selves they don't all work together. For example the vehicles don't feel, to me, as if they are in the same street.

Here is the photo that inspired the painting.


Here it is, in a frame.
