Rainy Night at the Opera, Queen and University

30x30 oil on canvas
This is an amazing building, and very difficult to portray. The lighted glass building provided a difficult image with the back drop of dark buildings. Its one of those paintings that I had to get away from for a bit so that I wouldn't keep messing with it.  As it dries I will decide what it needs.
This corner of Queen and University is home to the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.

Hi J.
Thanks for your comment. Yes, squinting at all the spotlights in the city make me feel like I may go blind!

Beautiful. That's exactly what it looked like when we went to the rehearsal of Cosi fan Tutte a couple of weeks ago. Well done!

XOXOXO Barbara
