Boulevard East

The Daily Paintworks challenge was to paint home, whatever that means to you.  I was born in Argentina and came to the US, Jersey City, New Jersey, to be exact, when I was 14 years old.  Home to me brings images of my homeland and it also brings the image of the New York City skyline as seen from NJ.  I was in awe of it when I first saw it and it takes my breath away to this day.  I don't know if I love one place more than the other, but it was easier to drive to Boulevard East.
This was done in plein air.
Proceeds from the auction of this painting will be donated to the American Red Cross to help the victims of the Japan earthquake.
