The Smudges and Mess


It may be obvious that I prefer to paint the smudges and mess of the city, not the straight-edged girders and clean shadows.  This painting depicts the metal fence along Carroll Street near the bridge over the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn.  It's an 18x24 oil canvas.

Smudges and messes are much more interesting! Your city scenes are so well done, Bob.

Donna, Thank you. Smudges and messes come naturally.
