Windows 1

Here are pictures of how these NYC windows turned out! I'm partial to windows 2 and 4 since I painted the most work for them. The theme is about the magic behind ordinary things...the different creatures in each window are making tinsel, ornaments, snowflakes and the like. Window 4 is an interactive claw game...how awesome is that!
