En Plein Air: Summer Morning in Manhattan (Oil, 12 x 9)
It showered this morning. I hesitated as to whether I should go out to paint. The sky seemed to have cleared up after breakfast, so I decided to go. I took F train and got out of E. 63rd St. on Lexington Ave. The Catholic Church on E. 67th St. was in the dark shaded area but the Central Park was a little too far. As I was deciding, the sun suddenly came out of clouds and glared down on the street. It shone right along E. 67th St, cutting through Lexington Ave. I set up by a square column of Hunter College building's covered sidewalk -- a perfect place to look at the effect of the sun on the thoroughfare.
