Subway Station

I think I should be the official artist for the TTC, transit appears in so many of my paintings and drawings. This one is the People's Choice winner as many people tell me this is their favourite. It was one of those warm summer nights and I was fascinated by the light coming out of the subway station that is pretty much all windows. Its meaning for me is that particular type of urban loneliness filled with people. We are surrounded by light, darkness, others and yet often feel alone. Dimensions: 24 by 48.
