Toronto Streetcar and March Sun


12x12 oil on gallery wrap canvas Sold
When taking photos, I think the general theory is that the best time to take them is before 10 A.M. or after 2 P.M. The light and the colors are much rich at these times. I took this photo around 4 P.M. and I liked the contrast between the dark buildings and the light coming around the corner.
This is a "double" Toronto Streetcar, at the corner of St. Patrick and Queen Street.

A painting that resonantes with feeling. Reminds me of the city spaces painted by Hopper.

Spring! This is beautiful, and you nailed it with the light. I really love the sky as you look toward the sun.

Catherine, I don't think you are capable of every having a bad composition. Love the subtle buildings in the distance.
