ORCHARD STREET

I meet the nicest people in my gallery. This week a young man stopped in to look at the art work and was attracted to my pastel painting, Orchard street.



I explained to him that it was based on a photo I took over 20 years ago on a visit to NYC. Orchard St. was known for the shops that specialized in luggage and outer wear, and on Saturdays the merchants rolled there good out on to the sidewalk in addition to hanging them outside of the second floor on supports extending from the walls of the buildings.

This morning I received an email from Bobby with some kind words, plus these photos of Orchard St. that he found online. How thoughtful was that?!

Reminds me of Maxwell St. in Chicago. Long gone now.
