Childhood Skyline Memories
We moved to Long Island in 1993, when both of our boys were very young. The first thing we did, was go to New York City- and take the trip out to the Statue of Liberty. No matter how many times you see it, the Statue is an awesome sight!
This watercolor is painted from a photo I took that day of the boys looking back at the New York skyline from Liberty Island. Looking across New York Harbor, you see Ellis Island and the fantastic skyline of New York City. No matter how many photos I have taken since (and there are thousands) this is one of my very favorites. One reason is that it reminds me of three things-
1. our big move from California to New York
2. how much fun raising 2 little boys can be
3. how glad I am that we got to see the skyline as it was-
including the Twin Towers
