You, Me, and the City was inspired by a recent trip my wife and I took to New York City. Time Square, Broadway, the lights and energy are very exhilarating. There is definitely a vibration that runs through the streets of Manhattan. I have always loved the raw spontaneity of that old 1945 Life Magazine photograph of the Sailor embracing the Nurse at the homecoming of our soldiers after WWII in Time Square. I wanted to recreate, in full color, the romance and celebration of life that Time Square can give. I chose to paint this scene with acrylics on canvas. Acrylics allows me to touch the paint with my hands and can give me the freedom to make fast, spontaneous movements that translate into the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple.
