" Live from New York it's Saturday Night". Hey we have high speed in the hotel! I can blog. Arrived in the big apple and went directly to Lombardis' for some coal oven pizza in Soho/Little Italy. Liz went shopping and I set up On Lafayette street. Yep, right on the street. There were some barriers placed(I dont know why) but it made a great setup. I had great sun in 2 directions and this crazy diffused, backlit washed out sky view to the south. I chose the latter but can't say why. I think I'l regret it when tomorrow arrives cloudy. The building immediately on the left is the Puck building where I took Pratt classes years ago. It was good to be back and always interesting to paint on the street in Manhattan! Not sure how good the lighting is with this hotel light.
