"Cold Day, Hot Coffee in East Village"
Acrylic on canvas
52 x 45 cm (framed)

As I walked the East Village on a particularly frigid day I noticed a girl in a fuchsia scarf trying to keep warm.  She was clutching her coffee container to keep her ungloved hand from freezing.  How wonderful the momentary warmth of coffee feels on a winter day.  I sought to capture that moment in this painting.
