My cityscape class has officially started. I arrive in the city before seven and get to watch the sunrise and early cable cars begin their routes. I have not rode one since I was a kid and keep thinking I should catch one before my class.

I have started my second semester of grad school. The above painting was done for my online landscape painting class. The assignment was to create atmosphere so I had to pale down and soften the background behind the cow. I realize that I tend to keep my backgrounds just as strong as the foreground which results in less depth. I found this to be a very mushy way to paint.
