years ago i lived in jersey city, and the bus stop was just under my bedroom window. i remember at the time being very interested in japanese prints.
this painting was composed looking down from the window, partly from observation, but because the figures were constantly moving, it's partly made up. it's one of the reasons painting from life is so challenging, surprising, and occasionally rewarding.
i'd never shown it anywhere before, so it was fun to pull this painting out and hang it in our "snow show" at studio 21 south.
