"CAROLYN'S PERSPECTIVE"

16x8, oil on raymar canvas panel, $185.00

 I enjoy the quiet view into a city street.  The sharp angled shapes breaking up the canvas are interesting.  Chicago streets are truly beautiful.  They have lovely planters and trees lining the streets.
Last summer we visited Chicago and had a chance to spend some time with a good friend of my sons.  This is the view from her balcony.

I can see why you wanted to paint this. You did a terrific job. These looks serene with the long shadow and the lone pedestrian. Nice!

This is beautiful with the perspective and the colors. The perspective makes the painting so interesting and the format you chose is perfect for this subject.

Chicago is a lovely city and this is a lovely painting. It gives the 'real' feeling of city life in one of those quiet moments

This one jumped right off the page. I LOVE that perspective and the intersection of all the various lines and angles. Oh! And that terrific diagonal shadow. Really great work, Dori!
