This was Bedford Centerfest at lunch time. The streets were full of people out to have a good time, and what attracted me to paint the scene was how colorful everything was. I was sitting at our artists' co-op booth watching people parade back and forth. It really reminded me of NYC during my daily lunch break. I would sit in Bryant Park and be fascinated by the people. I still am, and I suppose that's why I paint what I do...People going about their daily lives.
