Upstairs, Brooklyn

9" x 12"

Two weeks ago Friday a new member of the Herman clan arrived.  I was in Brooklyn for a week to help out my daughter, and in the glow of the successful delivery and the new life, everything seemed especially compelling - even the fire escape.  My oldest grandson and his new bride live behind the window upstairs from the new arrival, making this an especially meaningful painting for me.
