ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Spring has come round again, and Carnegie’s Main Street is once again awash in white blossoms—a little earlier than usual this year. A freeze damaged many of the blossoms and the display may not be as vibrant as usual, but I have a painting for that.

In April, when the ornamental pears bloom, Main Street seems more colorful than usual with big clouds of soft white pear trees all along the street. Even though I painted this in 2003, it carries the memories of Carnegie’s Main Street as I was growing up, visiting the shops and walking here after leaving St. Luke’s School, then, later, working my first full-time job at the Isaly’s.
