Description

New York State of Mind

Billy Joel Painting

Sometimes my art comes intuitively, but other times I wake up with a vision and rush into the studio to create it. On those days I forget to eat and I zoom around the studio in a kind of frenetic passion. Painting Billy Joel was pure passion.

With so much going on in the world I was thinking about our sanctuary cities and especially about New York. In the midst of one of our greatest tragedies here in the U.S., we saw New Yorkers pull together and help one another. No one cared about ethnicity, race, religion, or sexual orientation. Most reacted with human compassion, a willingness to look beyond our outer appearances -and worked on a soul level – to help one another. That’s part of what makes New Yorkers so great, the diverse melting pot of people who live there! Not to mention great shows, museums and some of the best damn pizza and bagels.
