Warm Garage 20 x16 oil on wood.
This is a corner of a small parking garage in the late afternoon where I was struck by the light and the effect and shape of it on the ground. I was on the fence about how abstract I wanted to to with it as I was afraid that if I when too abstract there would be no references for people to be able to see what it was. I started it once and trashed it for being to "small separate piece like", wiping it down so it was more massed. I like it better, but still feel like I can visit this subject again and do a better, more simple, braver painting. Must... let go... of my realism crutch. I ended up doing a little glazing in the shadows to darken them. Not my favorite way to work, but necessary in this case. The car was added for life and context, I think that works.
