Arches
When I saw this scene, I liked the somber, brooding mood of abandonment. I also liked the question it asks...what was this place in better days? The playful images painted on the windows suggests something for children, which makes it all the sadder.
 I steered my sodium-vapor hues a bit more toward the yellow than usual, away from the orange. This may be a trend in my future pieces.

I started this painting in 1999, stored it and finished it in 2005. There is something I don't like about the composition, but I won't say what; I want to see if anyone else sees the same thing.
 My brother Steve laughed when he saw this painting. He thought the arched screen door was incongruous or something. Now I think it's funny. 30 x 24

I am doing a feature journal of the people I watch and like for October. If you wish to join, you can give me links to two works you wish to be featured.
