CITY IN THE RAIN

48" x 60"

ACRYLIC ON CANVAS

I was commissioned to paint this piece by a gallery in Edmonton, Alberta, for one of their clients.
 

The collector wanted it as a gift for someone who owned a major taxicab operation. The only request was to include a lot of taxis.

I chose to create a rainy night scene as I thought the street reflections would add a nice element to the work.

As it was to be a surprise Christmas present I added lights in the trees to create

a sort of holiday feel.

I've been fortunate through-out my painting career to have wonderful collectors who let me paint what whatever feels right to me.
