"Pioneer Square Evening" Seattle city oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Pioneer Square Evening"  24x16 oil on canvas SOLD
Pedicabs are common in Seattle and the vendors often fix them up according to there tastes......some can be pretty interesting!....A lot of them have cool neon lights.  The beautiful lights of the square and the glow of fall leaves as dusk settled in Seattle inspired me to record my impression on canvas. If you are interested in purchasing this painting send Diane an email at Alki Arts and she will be happy to help you.

"Big City" Seattle city oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Big City" 6x8 oil on panel  sold
This is a small city study that I plan on painting larger. I think it has good story and some interesting shapes. She seems vulnerable but somehow surrounded and protected by the light... ....FYI ...If this girl was to turn around and walk the other way up Post Alley she would run into the Alibi Room, right across from the Gum Wall, which has the best pizza in Seattle...in my opinion....just sayin...
