I love New York City. It is big, noisy, and a little scary for a suburbanite such as myself. But, for culture--both highbrow and the rest, there is no other place like New York in the United States. My pet peeve is that I don't get to visit it often. I have only three or four paintable pictures of this exciting city from my few visits.
The photo I used for "Autumn Central Park" wasn't taken on an autumn day at all. It was on an overcast day in May during my family's mini vacation that I took the shot. No matter. I Photoshopped the picture, intensifying hue/saturation. You just can't believe what you see these days, ha!
If you send me your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org, I may make paintings out of them. How fun is that! At the end of September, I will do a drawing and one lucky person wins a free painting. You can buy the painting anytime, but there is no obligation. Thanks!
Today is Day Sixteen of Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 Challenge. I am halfway through!
