There was a Chinese restaurant we used to go to before concerts at the 92nd St Y,
on 3rd Ave between 88th and 89th Streets.
In Manhattan, of course.
I used to love the buildings across the street.
One exceptionally nice day I snapped a pic - this was years ago.
Nowadays, when I'm looking for my next painting, I look at these pics I took years ago.
That's where I get a lot of my inspiration.
Think about it - no matter how nice a pic is - especially in your computer, how often are you going to look at it?
When I do a painting of that pic, for awhile I inhabit that world.
I was back on 3rd Ave, looking at that blue building and the hardware store,
(which is still there as of this writing).
