Inspired by Vancouver street art. . .

Walking around the central part of the city of Vancouver, B.C., one encounters dozens of beautiful murals painted on every imaginable surface: under bridges, on the sides of buildings, on sidewalks. The quality of the art is amazing, and I find myself drawn to the brilliant colors and exciting color combinations. No surprise, as I am generally drawn to bright juxtapositions of color in my own work, and I sometimes must restrain myself to keep things more subdued and simple. There is also some pretty incredible architecture. . .the building pictured brings to mind an advancing twill weave structure in silvers and grays—-something different for me to try sometime.
