An early painting from of my photo-realism phase.
Street Scene, Day
From sketches done around the Atlas Building in downtown Washington, the dilapidated building was across from the FBI and National Portrait Galley. The streets were filled with government workers, homeless and tourists.
Looking west, faceless government workers, delivery truck, I place myself behind the stoplight.
During the Reagan era, budget cutbacks eliminated my position at the Capital Children's museum and I found myself in the unemployment line.
Yep, I liked playing the games. Also, good place to capture unsuspecting subjects.
