Bottom image is how the painting “the city” looked originally. Top image: I jazzed it up a bit and added a layer of riot (2016). Title “this used to be the city” no it is NOT about armageddon or anything more than the colors of a cityscape. some are drab, but i want to see the more vivid side, the wild side of the city. could be any city really. but probably New Orleans or someplace with a riot of color and commotion. New York would work. Unfortunately, i was still not satisfied with the painting and (i regret….) painted over it again (middle image) in 2017. The 2nd iteration was the best. i should have left well enough alone. My bad.
