The name "Flatbush" comes from the Dutch meaning a 'wooded plain', according to Wikipedia.  So it's nice to see a tree on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.  Actually, there are a number of trees along Flatbush Avenue, even though now it's essentially a hard-surfaced, heavily built-up, travelled and populated place.  I was trying to achieve a dense, textured surface in this painting.  It may become part of a series.  12x12 oil on panel.
