"Seattle Alley" oil painting

Have been spending some time lurking in the alleys around Seattle taking pictures......I'm really drawn to the interesting perspectives, the colors and textures of the old brick buildings...seems in Seattle there is always a puddle of water to add reflections and drama to an otherwise common scene.

12x16, oil on stretched canvas $300.00

Thank you Vikki!...Yes, the needs of many homeless and hurting are refelected in the lonely alleys..and as times get tough the most vulnerable suffer most.

That's one sexy flow and puddle and alley drain! Almost looks like a water color.
