Using a photo reference from the hugely popular blog on Facebook "Humans of New York" by Brandon Stanton, I painted this piece as part of a series of illustrations highlighting individuals up and down New York City.
Having been born and raised in New York, I moved to Florida in 2013 and felt homesick, so painted out the gorgeous characters that Brandon captured to help me settle into the move.
Brandon's original photo of this couple really spoke volumes. They looked so comfortable and at peace and I thought it was a beautiful scene. I took on this painting as a challenge to see if I could recapture that essence.
