Little Italy, Philadelphia

"little Italy, Philadelphia
6x6 oil on panel

Don and I took an awesome vacation to…. wait…. New Jersey!
We stayed at the deluxe Marriott Fairways Villas in Galloway and among the many activities we could choose from was a day trip to Philadelphia.
I haven't seen Independence Hall or the Liberty Bell since I was 10 and the Liberty Bell was still outside in the rain, but it was fantastic! 
Yes, we did the Rocky steps which is what the steps to the Philadelphia Museum of Art are now called.
Anyway, I digress. 
This is my entry for the Girls Just Wanna Paint October Challenge, "Chiaroscuro".
It's a dramatically lit (that's what chiaroscuro means) doorway in Philadelphia's 9th Street, Italian neighborhood

I LOVE this! It conveys light and shadow so well. The abstractness is wonderful!
