Denise recently sent a catalogue of the 'City of Glass' series to Paul Auster's agent in New York, to introduce him to the series and as a way of saying thank-you for the inspiration. Yesterday I was thrilled to receive the following response:
Dear Mr. Hanson,
Incredibly moved by your magnificent paintings. They are strong and
beautiful -- and haunting. To think that my book could have inspired such
vivid colors. I am very happy.
All best thoughts to you,
|My paint-spattered copy of The New York Trilogy|
A post about the latest painting in the series, working title 'City of Glass 27- (Shadow)' will follow shortly.
