My last acrylic on canvas, it took me a long time to paint all these little windows…. I though I was never going to finish this painting :-)
The view is what you see driving out of Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada) and going towards the North Shore.

    Beautiful piece. Great sense of space and vastness in the sky framed by the epic scale of the buildings. I love how the urban environment appears to abruptly stop and nature takes over in the distance. Excellent work

  • Thanks Matt for your nice comment and interesting observation.
