I made this series of six paintings of the view of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan Skyline sitting on the docks at Staten Island from midday until night — it was so beautiful and I felt new in New York. Mayor Michael Bloomberg asked for my images to represent Immigrant Heritage: they appeared citywide on screensavers, posters, and stationary, and were featured in two articles in the New York Times.
