The Village at Yonge

Abstract painting of a Toronto street scene in the rain. The rain-drenched streets reflect bright reds, contrasting the dull grey blue buildings fading into the grey blue sky. This is the Gay Village at Yonge.

This is a recent abstract painting I finished. I love red lights in the rain. Set against the grey of the road and sky, they are beacons drawing the eye in. The weather and light work together to bring us down to earth, away from the urban forest or flagpoles and banners and skyscrapers all of which are receding. We are visually drawn down to a human scale but still have difficult discerning human form from street furniture. It is at this human level that we find the most to connect with.

The original painting measures 36″x24″
