I meant to paint the Riverside Church on Riverside Dr. by W 120th St. this morning. However, when Bus M5 was slow approaching to the stop at W 89th St , I saw through the bus window the monument loomed up in front of me. Wow, it looked magnificently beautiful. I immediately decided to get off the bus and paint the monument instead.
It was a long ride. I had to take F train first to W 57th St. and then switch to Bus M5. Therefore, on my way to and back from there, I grabbed quite a few sketches.
