Broome Street Guardians

Broome Street Guardians
Oil on canvas
12x9 inches

A new year, a new painting. This architectural study captures details on an older building located on the Lower East Side. The angel and gargoyle guard the current home of New York Artists Equity located on the ground floor. I am enchanted with these whimsical embellishments, especially plentiful in the older neighborhoods of the city. The LES is changing rapidly as is evidenced by a new structure rising rapidly diagonally across from this modest red brick building.

I have many fond memories of spending Sundays with my family on the Lower East Side, eating, shopping and soaking up the history of this neighborhood where my Dad was born.
