A Bridge Not Too Far


I remembered seeing a street in Brooklyn where the Verrazano Bridge peeked up at the end of the block. Butch Belair and I were going to draw, so I mentioned this to him. He said let's find it. We drove around and around and this is the spot we came up with. It's not the one I remembered seeing but it was pretty damn good. I love the unusualness of the setting. It's as if God wanted to put a big mountain in Brooklyn, so he put this sculpture up to see what it would look like if he really put one there. I personally think a mountain would look great in Bay Ridge. For what it's worth I give my go ahead.

....I'm sure he will make a note of it lol. Great painting, I love how you bend the buildings slightly, which always gives them a unique quality and looks so right.

That's because I'm bent.

That's the thing about art, you can do anything you want with it. If you think there should be a mountain there, put one there. Just to see how it would look. Or have you already done that? LOL!

Amazing drawing.

Have a great day!

Wonderful drawing! When I visited New York last April, I loved that area where you could see both the brooklyn bridge and the manhatten bridge while wandering through the small streets!

Some women have claimed that indeed massaging your
boobs will make them larger but the reality is that in most cases, it is what
I would consider to be the placebo affect. So for this type of
symptoms, it is not merely the extra fat in the breast area that has to be removed
but hormonal adjustments and therapies may be required
because of the patient's hormonal imbalances in the form of having too much estrogen over the male hormone testosterone.
Ahead of this sit in a position in which you'll be comfy.
