"All the strangeness and the glory and the power of life." - Thomas Wolfe
A cityscape casts a shadow of trees, marrying the aspirations of nature and man alike. This piece was commissioned as a gift for the cast of "Genius" - an upcoming film that chronicles Max Perkins's time as the book editor at Scribner, where he oversaw works by Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and others. The quotation is from a conversation Thomas Wolfe had with Max Perkins while watching the sun set over New York City.
