Since I bought two canvases, I thought I’d do paintings that could go together. Here is last night’s project, the Minneapolis skyline amidst a blue sky. I’m not sure what time of day this is supposed to be… perhaps early morning. I don’t know what other time you’d get the silhouette effect.
This one, unlike the Toronto painting Monday night, took about twice as long. I painted it as I watched TV over the course of four hours, including American Idol, which totally sucked last night. I don’t have very high hopes for this season, unless Norman Gentle makes it far.
Here’s what the two paintings side-by-side look like. I still plan to maybe write the city names in the “water” space at the bottoms.
