Intersection with Expectations

A city intersection in an older part of town is sprinkled with unexpected elements. A green snake climbs the planter stake and someone has walked out of her red high heeled shoes. A dogs lazes in the street despite traffic. The more you look that more surprising details emerge. The drawing is 11" by 14" on watercolor paper with watercolor wash. Unframed.

I spent a lot of time on this piece. I wanted to make it a layered experience. It needed to be that pleasant looking tree-lined street corner, obviously in an older part of town with newer high rises in the distance. The boy on a bicycle fits right into that charming little scene. It is so normal that the strange to surreal elements provide that much more an intersection with expectations and the unexpected.

Nice fresh work, worth more then a full scale painting, it's a live, well done and so well observed.
