‘New York Blues’ is a cityscape picturing an average rainy evening, The blue of the picture represents the peacefulness but also gloominess of the landscape. The people of the city are going about their business with the vehicles frozen in the picture surrounded by leafless deciduous trees and large city buildings reaching to the dark, dreary sky. Muted light emits from the buildings and streetlights, reflecting on wet trees, walls and ground with the puddles scattered like a minefield, lighting up the city. This painting is a snippet of everyday life, capturing the city’s essence.
