Jackie Griswold Art Blog
The About.com Painting Guide has a monthly project to challenge artists and get them to do something they might not ordinarily do. The July project is an abstraction of a urban scene.
I live in Springfield, MA, and every day as I go to work I see the very futuristic looking Basketball Hall of Fame set against the much older high rise buildings in downtown Springfield. So this is the scene I chose to paint in an abstracted view. I think it is an interesting composition to see the contrast of the very modern Hall of Fame building and tower with the old church and taller buildings
It's done on a piece of grey mat board, using acrylic paint.
