the D train

It's rare that I use photo reference, but lately I've been carrying my coolpix along. I love photography in general, as a teenager I had my own darkroom and would spend hours developing film and printing photos. Another subject that I find fascinating, is Mermaids, and what a combo, as testimony to finding it all in New York City.
(Acrylic on board) The painting is part of my Graduate work.

When in the subway, don't act like you're inside the Louvre, Heidi ! No flash photography !

Dearest Chibiroso and kikiroso,
Please excuse the complete crudeness of my flash, as it certainly is barbaric and may, in time, come to damage the outer stainless of the trains.
