The view from the Met Rooftop
Metropolitan Art Museum offered a crystal clear view of NYC over Central Park tree tops. It was also wicked hot and getting up there took some climbing as the elevator was reserved for special use. The panorama was painted from a composite of 7 photos taken as I spun slowly left to right. I think it will be a while before I try to paint so many building windows. On another note, Alex and I attended a presentation by visiting artist, Nancy Blum, at Bowdoin today. She was captivating and her work was just amazing. She works very artfully in large scale drawings, sculpture and public art. We are so glad we didn't miss her talk.
