I wanted to paint two of my favorite cities to hang on my kitchen wall. New York and Miami. I got several other favorite cities, but start with these. I found meatpacking district on google earth and traced it over on canvas. Then starts the tedious but wonderful process of painting the city. Not strictly to detail but total free artistic license. It is one of my favorite things to do. I relax totally and feel it does my soul good. I choose colors, create my own scenery although it is quite close to the real thing. You can still make out the Highline, some hotels and harbors.
