Downtown Door 2

Oil on canvas, 7 x 5 inches Number 24 in the Nashville365 series

This is another one where I’m not sure where I took the source photo, but I can tell you I enjoyed painting it. Grungy old brick certainly is expressive and fun to paint. Swirling various shades of reds together is fun when you learn to let go of all the detail between the bricks, and let them be a pulsing mass of color.

I just LOVE painting grungy old brick. Who knew it could be so expressive?
