Bread of Life, urban oil painting


I spent alot of time refining this painting and could have spent alot more. My goal has been to get more impressionistic in style ,but this image had so much detail I felt that it needed to be tightened up to make sense.
This is a view from the Pioneer Square district in the city of Seattle. I took alot of pictures after going over for City Team last week. 12.5 x 9 oil on masonite panel, SOLD
