I think the incongruity of a working art studio in the heart of Times Square just stops people. Unexpected. The process of going from sketches and photos to canvas, seeing an artist lost in thought, many people find interesting. You often hear "Ah ha. So that's how they do it." Stiff competition that. They can either watch or cross over to M&M World. Or a hundred other attractions. The noise of Times Square, the movement, color and energy has a dramatic effect on the new paintings. — The Brill Building, 49th and Broadway.
