Lindsay Hollinger
I was drawn to the noontime aspect of the poem, because I like to paint light. Noon light is very bright, and its one of the nicer times of day in Syracuse.

I took photographs, did a lot of sketches, then narrowed it down. I knew I wanted to skew the perspective, so if you notice, the statue and the figure are not in proper relation. And shes not really on the ground. Shes sort of floating in the summer air.

I like the expression she has, and I like the color, the bright color. Its the embodiment of a bright summer day. Shes really happy and smiley. Its the nice part of Syracuse, the part I like to think of, when its, like, six degrees outside.
