"Seattle Glow"


6 x 6"
oil on masonite
sold

This new painting shows that beautiful glow of the early evening light on my first full day in Seattle. Skylines can be really difficult unless you approach it as a collection of shapes and color, hoping the depth will take care of itself. I often walk around cities squinting - seeing bundles of blocks and light - and this was one of my favorite views. Many, many more to come.

Congratulations on the show Karin, looks great on the walls, glad to see you've sold well too. There is nothing like a trip somewhere away from home to be at your own opening and meet new people...Sounds like your cabbie was just the thing and oh yeah, Happy Birthday!

Love the skyline painting--what a wonderful way to celebrate your birthday: a fabulously successful show and all new travel adventures to immortalize in paint!

You`ve carptured a view of the Emerald city. I see the quartet of characters skipping down the road. And the little dog too! Very nice work. Congrats on the show.

Such fun to meet you at Howard/Mandville Gallery for your opening - and on your birthday, even better! I look forward to seeing more paintings from your trip to the Pacific Northwest.
