Blue umbrellas

These umbrellas line the street alongside Grand Central Station. I was there on an unusually misty day when it seemed like the only things in focus were the umbrellas, so that's how I painted it.  I don't paint on an orange ground very much, and when I do, I tend to let as much of it show through as I possibly can.  It's a fun background color to play around with.

This one is 8 x 8 inches on a cradled board, which means that you could hang it on a nail with no hardware at all, unframed, if you wanted to.  Click here to bid, and go here to see other paintings on eBay.
