This piece I did some years ago is called, "Bell," and it is a painting of an actual passage in SoHo near my studio in NoLita. One day I saw a bride in a beautiful gown walking there. "What is she doing here?" Why is she alone?" I kept thinking about her that day, and I saw this scene so that I made into a painting.
I usually paint what I see in my dreams. My dreams are often nightmares, and I wish they were more joyful like this beautiful bride in a dark alley!
