Downtown With School Bus

Downtown With School Bus
9x12, acrylics on canvas

Here's how I spent Valentine's Day. I took this photo more than a year ago, and I've been wanting to paint it forever. I decided today was the day. This is early morning light in downtown Augusta at the intersection of Water, Bridge, and Cony Streets. We have such a beautiful downtown area, with all those nineteenth-century brick buildings, that it's a real shame that so much business has moved away from downtown and out to the malls. When I was a kid, downtown Augusta was thriving.
