Peeping Pergola

Here's my latest effort to paint the most banal, most immediate scene possible and make it somehow interesting. For me it evokes old, working-class Ontario, perhaps Hamilton or parts of Toronto or even where I live now, the Ward in Guelph. It has a certain nostalgia to it.

I mostly improvised the work, and played fast and loose with the colours, sense of light, and especially texture.

I sold it, happily, to someone who had a good view of similar improvised architecture in Little Italy in Toronto a weekend ago.
