Queen and St. Patrick, Toronto

6x6 oil on board
I was able to spend some time in Toronto, and took lots of photos. The city provides so much food for the senses. There are so many shapes, textures and colors. There is lots of activity going on, even on the coldest or snowiest days. Its exciting being there, taking it all in, and hoping that I can capture even a small portion of what it has to offer. And of course, the architecture is stunning.
This small painting shows the corner of St. Patrick and Queen, on a cold crisp February day. I plan to do a larger version of this scene.
$100.00 plus $10.00 shipping
If you would like to bid on this painting, you can go to the ebay auction page HERE.

Catherine, a very interesting composition and once again I admire your clever use of tonal values. I just called my husband to look at Snow on Queen. That is my all-time favorite!
