Howard Ave Gold

my chosen notan

I usually do not chose to paint structures... just that, too much structure! But for this particular local show you must have an entry painted from town scenes to jury in. It must emphasize life in Kensington. hmmmm... I have thought on this one for along time before arriving at a suitable concept. The fog helped...always does. This little street is down the hill from my house. It has a row of tiny antique stores...real low key, not the expensive antiques. Down the road a tiny bit is the old Kensington train station. Phew! Finished that...now back to water scenes!

Loriann, A street is also a river. A house is a tree.

Your recent work has been outstanding. This is a great piece. You've kept the structures open for interpretation. Very good light. Good luck with the show!

Thanks guys!

Thanks for checking in Brent!

Good idea Bob!

Brian, I like the idea of keeping the structures open to interpretation... easier to do as a river, or something organic......man-mades seem more demanding. I will remember that.
