Up on the roof

 I now have roof access! This ladder gets me on top of things.(hang on and don't look down!)
If you look down 1st Ave.N.E. you can see the new Twins stadium.
 The back alley from the roof is a fresh perspective.
Across the street is an old tree in the middle of a parking lot.  I can see a series of roof  work.
 And if I'm really good, maybe I'll see Santa come down this chimney! Anyway, I'm looking at
things and possibilities. Thanks for stopping up!

Heart shadows

I spotted this scene and thought it would be interesting to paint. I made the greens with cobalt,
lemon yellow and smuggled red into it. Brush and palette knife. 10"x10" oils on canvas board.

Latenight walk

Went for a walk the other night and saw this. I painted this from memory the next day to recall the mood.
The neon light reflecting on the water tower looked cool. It's a quick thumbnail sketch, I wasn't going for
perfection as much as recalling the scene.
8"x10" oils on gesso'd board.
