Battery Park Series: #2 Statue of Liberty

I painted this scene this morning. It was a very grey, overcast day; no color anywhere!
The two things that attracted me were the Statue of Liberty and the bridge to the left.  The distance between them was too much, so I decided to eliminate one of the land masses between them.  That would be Staten Island, since I don't know anybody from there, I thought it would be OK. But the painting doesn't look right without it.   Anyway, the next time I paint this I'll bring a longer canvas and include the land that I left out.

Oil on canvas.  6 x 9
