"Bond Street Afternoon”. 11” x 13”, oil on panel.
This is my favorite kind of light in Astoria. Mixed light. Right after a rain. The street is partially dry and drying. Clouds and sun. And it's a street that's thought of as kind of gritty. Yet, it's beautiful.
I think this piece says what it feels like to be in the magical town of Astoria, Oregon--the oldest city in the western United States.
