    City Bird Perches

    I really love the architecture of some of the buildings downtown. The Niagara Mohawk building—I think that's gorgeous. And the architecture of the courthouse—that's what really drew me to do the Columbus Circle piece. I like how it has so much line to it, so much detail.

    I'm really pleased with the painting. But actually it started off almost as a mistake.

    First I wanted to do a line drawing, and once I had the lines down, I was going to have really thin layers of watercolor, so the lines still come through. But I ended up doing it very opaquely, and I found I liked that effect.
