Artist's description:

Surrealist painting based on my experiences in New York in 1969. I was looking for a decent hotel to stay in but as it was the peak of summer time good ones were hard to come by. I was only there for a few days so had to settle for what I could get. This was a grubby hotel down a side street just off Times Square. Having signed in I made my way to the tenth floor and went into my allocated room. Huge room, bare wooden floor, creaky old double bed, grotty sink, a broken wardrobe, small coffee stained bedside cabinet, with bed sheets and blanket I dare not mention. When I drew the curtains open to see the potential view from the tenth floor all I saw, about 6 feet on the opposite side, was a bright brick wall and drop of about 80 feet between the two buildings. This was the first thing I thought of when creating this painting, along with the seagull when crossing the Mersey River on the ferry in Liverpool. These were the main two images I put into the composition, adding several other images which related to my past. It was not until 2006 I decided to do this painting.
