Verticals on Bay Street, Toronto

12 x 12 oil on board
There is no rhyme or reason for the way the light falls in the city. With so many glass buildings creating reflections on other buildings, light and shadow pop up anywhere. This scene was around five o'clock, just in time for rush hour. A beam of light contrasts with the verticals of the tall buildings as it cuts across Bay Street in the financial district of Toronto. The old City Hall clock tower is visible at the end of the street.

This is lovely and looks a bit like Siena, Italy -- only there wouldn't be cars. Superb.

XOXO Barbara

beautiful balance and order, yet evocative light and dynamic rhythm-again am so loving the varied edges that pull it all together!
