East Village Haze

2018, Oil on Linen, 28"x 20"

This is a larger version of this scene. The original of the same title, was 7x5 inches.  I don't do a lot of remakes, but this kept prodding. Here is what I wrote three years ago.

This is a scene that I happened upon during my quest for cannoli and cappuccino. The light show that is New York City at night is particularly evident in the cloud cover. In the '70's and '80's there were only a handful of buildings that were lit and the Empire State Building was the color of the evening. In recent years many other buildings have joined in, each with its own color palette. The result is a more neutral glow, and the color far usually much more subtle.

This, along with three other paintings are headed down to Principle Gallery, in Alexandria, Virginia for the group exhibit, City Limits. The opening reception is on Friday, April 13, 6:30-9:00
