City of Gloom

9” x 12” mixed media on paper

I’ve always been visually attracted to architecture, there must be a connection to my love of painting cityscapes.

I used to love drafting class in high school. All the lines were perfect, nice and neat and square. At that time, I liked the exactness. Somewhere down the line, I decided abstract with no order is much more fun!

My cityscapes are still abstract, I never want them to be too literal so I keep them slightly askew and not square. This one really isn’t that gloomy, but the simple tones are subtle and the mood darker than my normal colorful pieces.

Mostly watercolor with a little acrylic and a little pen, “City of Gloom” is available as a print, poster or even a tee-shirt at my Fine Art America site!



  1. It is a bit gloomy because of the solid windows. It reminds me of a city know longer livable. Well done my friend. I saw this piece on Instagram. I am still learning how to navigate there. This is the world of Instagram for me. Haha I am just being silly. Sending you lots of love my friend and hopes for a day full of creativity and love. β€οΈπŸ€—πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸŒΊπŸ’•

    1. I always appreciate your support Joni, thank you so much! I rather enjoy Instagram because it is quick to skim through lots of images and gather inspiration, and it makes perfect sense for you as a writer to enjoy the WP platform more! But it’s a joy to interact with you on both, I hope you are doing well my friend! πŸ™β˜ΊπŸ₯°
