One of the more difficult paintings I have done. I had to "talk" to myself continuously during the process of creating this image. It was important that I not make the highlights on the lit church side of the street too white and that I balance all the other lights in the painting so they aren't too bright and not compete. Then there were the cars...how to hint at them and not be too visible. Once again I went for the abstraction of shapes to create the recognizable story.
