Here's my latest painting portraying New York City in its grittiest and dingiest time period in the late 1970s and early 1980s showing you in an un-sugar coated portrayal of how it looked in what is often considered it's worst era. What's today lined with Broadway Theaters, high end department stores, souvenir shops, and expensive restaurants, was once lined with brothels, bars, and a whole mix of other questionable nightlife businesses complete with the dicey characters that roam the streets as a result of those places at that time. I'm normally not too metaphorical with my artwork, but I decided to be this time: Just like in the instance of us as people, Every city has it's dirty little secrets, and time periods where certain issues were rampant. But with the right measures taken, in conjunction with time, the city is able to overcome these issues, and improve upon itself, much in the same way that we are able to change ourselves as people with the help of God above and time both on our side. It was not easy to clean up New York, and to this day it still has a certain grittiness to it, but it's a journey that isn't all completed at once. Much in the same way that we will always have our shortcomings, and persistent issues as people, but we are a on a journey, not at a destination. Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this painting.
