Painting name:
Roosevelt Avenue

Size:
22” x 30”

Medium:
Watercolor

Paper:
Arches Cold Press, 300 lb

Painting Info:
The location is New York City. Specifically Roosevelt Avenue in the Jackson Heights section of Queens. Overhead is the almost 100 year old No. 7 elevated subway line, which ends in the distance, six more train stops further down, at Shea Stadium, home to the New York Mets baseball team. This is the train that takes the local folks here in Jackson Heights, mostly latin and asian, to the “city,” as Manhattan is called to the natives, and to their daytime jobs. Underneath the “el” at street level are the many small shops and businesses that run all along the mighty steel structure.
