Dusk, water and the empty space

10" x 10" oil on panel

This is a scene I painted which once had a big brick apartment building and other houses near Fort Trumbull in New London, CT.  It is the scene of an eminent domain site where many people once lived.  It is funny how a bulldozed area looks so forlorn and ugly in one kind of light, but is transformed by an evening sunset into a mosaic of color and contrast.
