"Chinatown Gift Shop"

This painting shows a window and front stoop across from the Nom Wah Tea Parlor, the oldest in Chinatown. Like the Sedona scene, it seemed completely real, but abstract at the same time. Half the time as I was painting this, I didn't even know WHAT I was painting. But it was so much fun. It was right around Chinese New Year, so the red and gold were everywhere.
