The Girl in the Red Dress, New York City. Robert Sturman Photography.

The creation of this portfolio began 15 minutes after the artist and model crossed paths for the first time in a cafe in New York City. Both were visiting the city.

The story behind the Art:
I was sitting in a cafe in the village, relaxing after a three week creative journey through the Northeast. In walks a girl in a red dress with a yoga mat. I asked her where she was going to practice. She asked me my name. Robert. No, your last name, she asked. Sturman, I said. She says we are friends on Facebook, and we walked out the door and made art, ending at Ground Zero, as she offered the most beautiful teardrop I’ve ever seen.

Robert Sturman.

The Beautifully talented yogini is Meghan Currie.

Who makes that red dress? I would love to see if I could get one. It’s so beautiful.
