8x8 oil on canvas
We often get a rain/snow mix at this time of year providing some nice reflections. The night colours of the city seem to be getting more predominately green as the type of light bulbs are changing. There used to be a lot of yellow, but now there is always a greenish shade showing up, making for some almost "garish" colour schemes. Streetcars used to have three yellow they are yellow and greenish. I knew this would be challenging with the blue green colours everywhere.
The Beck Taxi dominates the foreground on this rainy night on King Street in Toronto. The Golf Town store canopy is visible in the background.

Hi Catherine,
I think this is one of my favourites. I love the reflections, nice and loosely painted, not too fussy - a real success.

Beautiful. Love what you've done. You're right. I miss the old light. But hey, you make the new light look superb.
