Thank you for all the nice comments!
, you must love wind in your hair
That fountain was indiscernable looking at my reference photo, I had to Google like mad to find a decent photo (& still, I wish I'd given myself a little more time to work on that specifically).
, have you made yourself a cheesesteak yet? Your fixation is making me want one...( I'll take mine with fried onions & American cheese on an Amoroso roll, please).
, remember to get an idea of what time of day & what season your commission should be. I hadn't thought past day or night when I started out & then remembered all of the fireworks at this exact spot, how the bridges & taller buildings change color depending on holiday, the spotlights, the planes & blimps & stadiums. Philly is so colorful & full of character. I had the good fortune to work down by the Philadelphia Int. Airport & was lucky enough to get stuck in rush hour traffic north on 95 many times
The bridges have lights under, over & through them. And I'm sure you know better than to take Blue's suggestion!
, I'm not sure when that particular building sprung up. It was there in 2009 and I remember wondering that myself. It reminds me of a perfect new eraser, I don't know why- just weird, I guess!
That museum does have a magic quality about it
, yes he does, and so do all of his buddies & his girlfriend!

, Thank you for the kind words!
Doing a piece in a new and untried (for me) genre kinda froze me up pre-painting, but I learned so much by doing this. The next one will be even better!
