Evening in downtown, 30X40 oil on wood
Original painting by Olena McMurtrey
The bodywork of cityscapes was inspired by my time living in the beehive of the Big Apple, Los Angeles, and later in the City by the Bay during my grad school. There is something magical when the sun sets exactly along the cross streets in coastal cities, beaming sunrays into shattered reflections of a concrete jungle. For precision to bring the grid of cityscapes into a dance with light, oils are my favorite choice.
