Rush Hour

I'm finally getting back into the swing of things from an art standpoint. I've been working on this one in dribs and drabs for a few weeks, on and off. But tonight I finally buckled down and got it as done as it will probably get. I loved the reference photo I used for this one.

It was just one of those lucky circumstances for me. I had left my office down in Newark, NJ, and was standing on the street corner in the twilight waiting to catch my bus home. There was still a faint glow in the sky, the streets were wet from rain earlier in the day, and the lights were just starting to come up. So I took out my cell phone and snapped a shot of the scene with the cell phone camera - and that was what I used as a reference paint this painting.

It's on my usual art spectrum paper, but a little larger than most of the paintings I have been working on lately, a 12 x 16.
