Anthony D'Avino's painting New York Symphony, on view in the "All the Places We Go"at The White Room Gallery exhibition is making the media rounds. Featured in Newsday, the painting is a popular one with readers. D'Avino had this to say about the painting, made in 2013:

"My early work was quite Surreal...With my "Times Square" pieces, I take the scene and add many things hidden in the image. The painting Beatles On Times Square started with adding the Beatles, then Superman in the phone booth, Spidey in the Billboards, family references, a UFO and Alien and many more.

"In New York Symphony, there are many hidden things as well. In the lower right is me, my Shepherd Luna and her tug of war toy at my feet (where it always was!), and now-President Trump with his hand on my shoulder and my wife’s face behind us! I actually sent the President a full size Giclee of the piece and, to my surprise, received a nice thank you letter. It was surely sent by a Secretary, but still cool."
