Fishing Boats

The above slideshow are of fishing boats from Santa Cruz and Monterey, California. They are watercolors with sumi ink on 5×7 inch watercolor paper for our project called The Brighton Beach Memory Exchange in Brooklyn, New York’s Brighton Beach neighborhood. You can check out our project called Моя Америка (My America) by clicking on the link. The pictures were given to my mother for Mother’s Day on her recent visit to New York.

Vladimir and Otar

The above two images are sumi ink paintings of the residents of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn that I met while working on our project Моя Америка (My America). The project is about people from the republics of the former Soviet Union who live in New York City. Meeting these two guys was one of the high points of the project.
