Main Street

I was driving around this suburban no-man's-land of a distant city in a rather unhappy state of mind, and for some reason, snapping pictures while waiting at lights made me feel a little more hopeful. I finished this painting a few years, and many miles, later.

I've always thought of doing a street scene. I like your use of color though out.

You transformed your suburban no-man's-land into an interesting, even beautiful, place. Quite a trick!

I love taking random photos from the car as I drive. I'm so fond of these little clips of everyday life.
