The Flute Player

"The Flute Player"

I took a picture of this man while waiting in line to get on the ferry to go to the Statue of Liberty. He was sitting on the ground beside the LONG line, playing "Battle Hymn of Republic" over and over. I didn't get the sad look that he had.
I think he was homeless. I thought he might be a veteran because of where we were, and what he was playing. This is just 6x6...I decided to do some small ones, and hopefully i can paint it larger in the same way. By the way, the Statue of Liberty is awesome! One of my favorite Ladies!!
