House On Dundas West

I finally have the opportunity to post this first painting completed in Canada.
It was a rather interesting experience having to work in a dimly lit basement from a tiny three inch screen with children constantly inquiring about what it was that I was doing and trying to touch my palette, or should I say the paint on it.

I see there are certain things about the painting that i should have given more thought to, like the bottom part where the sidewalk seems to extend forward, as well as the sides of the entire piece. I should've just left the house be. Looking back at it, it's not very complete after all...
Oh well, next time.

This piece will be the start of a series based on the architecture of various parts of the city. In addition to the Cathedral series I plan on starting, hopefully sometime this week, now that things have somewhat settled.
