The process of painting this work was effortlessly beautiful. It was as if my hand just moved over the canvas by itself and my assignment was to pick up the best colors in the right sequence so that this pretty place would materialize in front of my eyes. I added a gold leaf shine to emulate a golden morning sun that makes nature look so luminous. The imagery came from a period of time I lived in NYC and was heading towards the East but had just traveled to Colorado. It is a truly international painting as it has been shipped and moved between these places and back!
