Bend in Eagle Street
It's wonderful to paint when one has latched onto something. This is the current iteration (I use that term only because I might continue to work on the painting, though likely not) of a large (for me) vertical, 24x18, oil on canvas of Eagle Street in North Adams. This time at its slight bend. What makes this short section of street remarkable is not only its narrowness, the way it receives light, but the great variety in the buildings in terms of color, shape, age, all of which lead to fascinating compositions.
