48" x 36" oil on canvas 2009
My younger brother, also an artist, didn't like this one. However, I was trying to illustrate this feeling I had about the scene, from a picture I took in NYC. He said the composition was incomplete and the colors scary. Well, isn't there anyone out there who wants to challenge the old school anymore and try something different? Is it always the artist's job to make only "pretty" pictures? Kind of a cliche and time worn question, but I think it's still valid.
