I took the reference photo for the painting while on a twilight boat trip on the Seine in Paris. Interestingly, this painting seems to glow every night during sunset, as though it comes to life when the ambient light is the same as it was that night on the Seine.
From April 3rd to May 30th it will be on display in the Uptown Gallery's exhibition "Growth & Brilliance". The exhibition was judged by Master Pastelist, Richard McKinley.
The Uptown Gallery is located at 1305 W. Main St, Richmond VA 23220. Opening reception is April 3rd from 5-9PM and the first Friday reception is on May 1st from 5-9PM.
