Waiting to Cross Younge, Toronto


10" x 8"
Oil on Canvas Board
Often I look at an image and wonder if it will" work". Even though I think it has too many negatives, I do it anyway. I liked the paper covered windows, and the starkness of the scene, even though I knew it would be difficult to portray.
I'm always amazed to see buildings for lease right down town Toronto on Yonge Street.
These young ladies enjoy a drink while waiting for the light to change at Yonge and Gould Streets.

I love your brushwork in this one and your palette. Another nice one. I think you just might be the queen of reflection.
