Dawn

 This piece is a vignette of my neighborhood and home in the North End at dusk and dawn.  The shapes, textures, animals, and plants are from the houses, gardens, and glimpses through the windows I see everyday as I walk through my neighbourhood and draw inspiration from my surroundings.

Art Description

A purple arch, crowned with colourful leaf and fruit shapes encapsulates an urban park setting in bright yellow, red, orange, and blue. In the foreground a dog overlooks park benches surrounded by plants. Behind him a basketball hoop bookends some potted plants, a cat, and a bird. Decorated silhouettes of buildings fill the background, fronted by song birds resting on a telephone line.
