"Side Steps"

5 x 7"
oil on panel

Included in my grouping 'Met Life' - a gentleman waiting out on the front steps of the Met, a favorite people-watching spot of mine.  The majority of my new paintings are tighter, this one started that way and veered towards a more textured play with an otherwise-boring wall and steps.  A cool, little painting.

I love the vibration of the warm colors against the turquoise wall. Outstanding! It almost looks like a pastel. Looking forward to seeing this in person, Karin!

Great composition~ I really love how the wall, railing, and steps become abstracted forms and more than simply a background! The guy looks great too. Nice work!!
