In Your Easter Bonnet

Ah, the colors of spring

"In Your Easter Bonnet"
Oil on canvas
36 x 24 inches

The spring holiday season is upon us so today I'm sharing a painting of the Metropolitan Life Tower, lit up in hues of pink, yellow and green. When I first saw the building I immediately thought of the tower donning it's Easter bonnet. I was delighted when several years ago the usually white lights were replaced by really bright colors. This multi-color light display had me grabbing my camera and trying to get some good night photos from which to do a painting, and here is the result. Wishing all who observe the holidays a healthy and happy Easter and Passover.
