New York Still Life

This painting was made in October 2001, right after. Now that some time has gone by I look at this painting, and it reminds me of those days. Since then New York has become a much bigger part of my life, I have visited every year since, and am glad to see that the city keeps going. New York represents, like no other place, the American dream. What is amazing is that when you are there the melting pot is boiling over, the whole world is all over that city and in every form imaginable. Let's take New York's example and learn how to live all together in a bigger sense.
