30” x 22” watercolor on Arches 300 lb paper. The annual Baltimore Watercolor Society trip to NYC to see the American Watercolor Exhibition is also an opportunity to take photo references of the city. I shot this image of my friend Cheryl in front of a set of reflective doors in an alcove. She was unaware that she was in the image at the time. I was drawn to the repetitive horizontal security bars against the reflections from the street in contrast to her vibrant red coat and silver white hair. It felt like a frozen moment in time. Little did I know that the annual trip would be cancelled the next two years.
