Crossing 7th

Crossing 7th
Oil and spray paint on canvas

I could probably work on this painting for another two weeks but for now it is finished.  I have to move on to something fresh.  
Since August 5th I've finished two large paintings.  
In my mind this one works as a whole but the individual pieces are ugly.  Not rough like the first draft of a manuscript but plain ugly.  Its a characteristic of my painting, there is a rawness to it.  So they say.
I do like the guy in the red shirt on the left. He's the focal point.  Can you guess why?


  1. Oooh, nice job, Angie. It looks like like a LOT of work - a lot. I love the movement and chaos on the bottom and the static stoic buildings on the top.

    Hmmm, red shirt, well he might get hit by a car as he's crossing the "wrong" way, but I bet there's more. He might be leaving the city, running away, perhaps.

    Do tell, I want to know!

  2. Hi Laura, it was and still is a lot of work. I'll have to do some more. I like the way you read into the scene. For mi it's purely pictorial, he's facing the other way. The wrong way I guess.

  3. Hi Angie, I've enjoyed browsing back through your blog. So glad I discovered you! Love these urban landscapes! I can feel the vibrant energy of the city in your work and I love your bold approach. Very nicely done!

    Red shirt looks lost... everyone else is rushing to their destinations but he doesn't know where to go.

  4. Hi Kathleen, he may be lost. It's nice of you to comment. thanks for following.


Hi from Paris!
