Chinatown, New York City

Chinatown, NYC contains the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia.  I visited Chinatown last September after leaving the annual Feast in San Gennaro, Little Italy.  I believe the reference picture was taken on Canal Street where you see color everywhere!!  and the smell of food was SO wonderful...I really hope that I didn't write something wrong  in Chinese...if I did, I apologize!  I guess I should have checked first!!.   If you haven't been to Chinatown, I recommend going there...especially if you're hungry!  The food is excellent!!  I took my time with this oil painting  and mixed my colors as best as I could in order to get that "perfect" shade.

Still Life - Orange

I filled this small  bowl with colorful fruits for this still life and realized that there wasn't any room left for the orange, so I put it on the outside of the bowl which looked a little better.  I haven't painted a still life for awhile so I enjoyed painting this.
