Was walking back to the hotel from a night on the town in Manhattan. Have always been fascinated by the markets that seem to be on every street corner in New York. The produce quality and variety are unmatched. Loved the contrast of the bright fruit and market’s inner glow against the dark street, awning, and figures in the street. Originally planned this painting as a “quickie” – loose brushwork and light on detail. But, was having too much fun and got caught up creating the detail in this work.
