Art 3 Gallery worked with a local couple (newlyweds!) to help them select a special piece of art. They visited the gallery and tried several pieces in their home, but they were especially drawn to the urban landscapes of Rhode Island artist Nick Paciorek. After consulting with Nick and Joni, they decided that a painting of the New York City neighborhood where they first met and lived would be perfect.

Nick started with 3 black and white sketches to get the feel and vibe of the street scene. Joni and her clients picked their favorite view and then Nick did a colorful sketch which was tweaked until everyone approved of the piece.

The final painting sized 30" x 58" hangs in pride of place in their family room.
