Knoxville. Last winter was brutal. There were a few days when I walked the streets but it was impossible to paint. I remember my iPhone hated the bitter cold as much as I did. This was one of the images I got before it basically gave me the finger and shut down. I’ve been thinking about this scene for 10 months and finally painted it last week. It is strange how some things percolate, nagging at you to be given a chance to become a piece of art.
