The Statue of Liberty painted from trade towers in New York.

This watercolor is part a series of paintings from landscape class at the Parsons school of design in NY in the 80's.We would meet at different locations in the city for Emily Ellmans' class. The view of the statue of liberty from the world trade towers was surreal and sublime.Upon reflection both the subject matter and perspective have meaning today.
