Today I completed another in my long-running series of urban landscapes. This one, like yesterday's, is an oil painting. In this case it is a scene in Washington, DC...Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown, to be exact. With this scene I am not working with quite the visual density of yesterday's New York painting. One of the things that interested me in this scene was the fact that we are looking at a street which just starts to turn down a slight hill. Another is the set of distinguishing marks for the older east coast architecture, such as the dark red brick and the lone dormer window at the upper left.

This oil painting is 20 x 16 inches.
