I have painted this scene from my window many times. Why? It is never the same; the sky changes, the colors of the street change, and the light is always changing on Union Station. Each time I begin, my eye always catches these variations. The Phillips museum in Washington has just opened a show "Seeing Double:Van Gogh the Tweaker". Van Gogh repeated paintings, changing them and "tweaking"them. Which of my paintings are the best? I want you to decide
I am back to the Plaza again. I really am drawn to the colors created by the stoplights. Of Course the winter gives added drama. I am not content to paint a scene that has no meaning to me. I respond to the energy of the city and that is why I paint cityscapes.
