Hi Liza. I love the light in this. I've been thinking about some reference shots I took in New York, and wondering how to paint them. Your paintings seem to be answering that question. I'm drawn to the same light/shadow images. This is so incredibly gorgeous.

Hi Barbara, I'm sorry, somehow this comment of yours slipped through...
I am pleased my painting was an inspiration to you and I can very well imagine pictures from New York in a similar style. I actually even thought it looked a bit like New York when I had finished it.
I also love painting this kind of light/shadow situation - a certain sense of drama!
