  • 12x24" Oil on panel.  Standing on the corner in NYC's Chinatown, I saw the red trucks and got the idea to wait for an isolated yellow taxi to come in between them.  Traffic was such that it never happened, so I have no photo, but one can paint anything one wants.  This painting took Best in Show at a juried exhibition in New Braunfels.
