Tag Archives: Long Island Expressway


This is untitled, and not really paradise, unless you believe in life after death.  This is really a celebration of not creating for the market.

The story goes like this:

One day, on Facebook, I was lamenting that I had no ideas for a new picture.  My cousin wrote “Draw what’s outside your window”.

Sometime later, my partner’s sister-in-law was mentioning that post.  I told her the only thing outside my window was the Long Island Expressway, and a graveyard.  To which Tara replied, “I would think a graveyard would be a great thing to draw!  With all those statues and shapes of headstones!”.

Well, my reaction was (silently), no one is going to buy a picture of a graveyard.  So, I didn’t do it.

Well, not drawing for the market….here it is, a drawing of a graveyard!Image

Oh, and here’s the view from my windowImage
