Dead Fly 64 City-scape

Dead Fly 64
charcoal on canvas 8"x 10"

     Sometimes I go to Astoria, NY to visit my son. We walk over to Socrates Park - a sculpture park which is by the East River. In my mind's eye I could see a large dead fly floating in the sky with the city in the background. This was not sketched on location, but it was sketched out as I remembered it. It's charcoal on canvas, then sprayed with fixative so it doesn't smudge. I have to say here, that although I do like to work in pastel and charcoal, it's kind of expensive to frame those works. You need mats and glass. With a painting on stretched canvass you only need the frame - or nothing. I'm of limited income, so my art is somewhat dictated by that.
