___________________________________________ So there we were, Edward and I, cruising around Manhattan in true bourgeois style aboard a Circle Line knockoff. Edward was his usual somewhat taciturn self; he didn't say much, but every so often he'd crack a joke about some particularly ugly part of the city as we glided past, crowded cheek by jowl with goggle-eyed Midwesterners and enthusiastic Japanese tourists with expensive cameras slung all over their torsos._______________________________________ As we started the turn around the lower tip of the island, however, Edward perked up considerably and whipped out a small sketch pad and some crayons. He made some rapid strokes, full of color, and without a word tucked everything away again, back into the capacious pocket of his trench coat._______________________________________ The next week he rang my bell, carrying a large but narrow rectangular zippered valise. Entering diffidently only as far as the foyer when I opened the door, he mumbled, 'Thought you might like to see the sketch.'_______________________________________ And here it is, painted from those few rapid strokes of colored crayon._______________________________________ My humble homage, in digital oils, to the genius of Edward Hopper; from an original photograph shot September 8, 2003.
