East - West Games
"One of the first paintings I did in my game-landscape series was inspired by my view from our apartment in New York. I worked just next to giant windows, 20 feet or more high, overlooking Manhattan. One evening, as I was painting, I looked out just at dusk and thought how the buildings reminded one of dominoes and visa-verse. Sometime later, we were in the Louvre Museum in Paris, looking out some equally giant windows across the river Seine to the old buildings on the other bank. I had the same thought as when in New York and determined to do a print of the concept. Standing some of the dominoes on end enhanced the relationship and the reflections in the door helps the viewer understand its Paris; East Bank - West Bank."
