This is another painting featured in my one-man show in Madison, Indiana. It is a scene on the main street in town. I was trying to portray what a sunny summer day looks like. To add interest I have a tree in the foreground with sunlight shining through it’s leaves.
The cars and trucks drive by. Notice how simply I have painted them. I leave a lot to the viewer’s imagination, but your mind fills in the blanks. I’ve got reflections of the sky in the building windows. Little spots of colors are placed carefully to portray the driver of the truck, the person walking down the street, and an individual leaning against a doorway. Also notice the highlights on the tops of the cars which is done with white paint.
