A Mountain in the Background
As a follow up to the "contre-jour" post, this 14x18 oil on canvas painting looks in the general direction of the sun, which is above the mountain in the background. I used the old factory building on the right to block it out. This is a view down Protection Avenue in North Adams, MA. Though I didn't intentionally seek them, I love the repeated motifs of lines and forms, the jagged roof edges, the mountain and sidewalk curves, the light in the shadows, etc. Just a simple view down a neighborhood street, except here there's always a mountain in the background.
