This piece was inspired by dreams, music, and life in New York City. The picture seems to frame a window into a different universe, and one can almost smell the scents and hear the sounds of the city. The copper paint glows with an ethereal beauty when light hits the art. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides.
