This piece captures that feeling of emerging from the underground train, finding oneself in the swirl of downtown; the sounds, the towering buildings, the completely shifting scene, every which way you face, as you get your bearings. It's that moment when one feels like a tiny mouse, a bit startled yet very much in awe of it all. After 20 years in the city, I still get that thrill.
Three L trains wind their way towards the Hancock building. Familiar buildings bend, as if the old Hancock tower is telling a story. Even the sun takes note. The lean of the Hancock building invites the viewer in.
This original oil painting features richly textured strokes. The water is a collision of teals and purples. Arcing cloud forms echo the bend of the trains. The sun’s light shines in checkerboard brush marks.
