Red Brick Spring, oil on canvas

Earlier this spring, I visited Philadelphia with my Mom for the always outstanding Philadelphia Flower Show. I love going to the city at this time of year because there's still the crisp, direct light of late winter without any summer haze and humidity. In addition, since it is still winter, the shadows are longer and more dramatic in the afternoon than they would be in the summer season.

This view is along Chestnut Street near 19th Street. Naturally, the glowing red bricks in the late afternoon sunlight drew me into this composition. I loved the contrast of these fiery colors against the cool, cerulean sky in the distance.

The light was so beautiful on this afternoon that I walked down Chestnut Street toward 15th Street and you can see a companion piece to this work, "Study, Early Spring," looking in the opposite direction as afternoon eased into evening.
