When I originally painted this scene, there was construction going on behind me. Lots of jackhammering and backhoe digging. I loved the scene, but the noise was a huge distraction. It was also a very traffic-y street with a red light, so I frequently had a full street of cars blocking my view. So, I did this toned down version once I got home. State Street, West Columbia, SC- a really cool part of Columbia, SC! I gotta say, Columbia is a much smaller city that Charlotte, NC but it has a much cooler vibe and is much more artsy. I like it a lot! Lots to paint here! PS- that's my car, a Honda Pilot, on the far left.
Thank you for looking at my blog. I also have a separate website at jenspaker.com
I'm a life long painter and enjoy painting landscapes and still life. I paint in both oil and acrylic. I paint what I like- sometimes going in phases of different subjects and styles. I like to try new ideas and subject matter. That keeps it interesting and challenging for me. Follow me on Instagram or Facebook and see my work at several galleries in New Bern, NC, Fort Mill, Columbia and Georgetown, SC. Thanks again for taking a look!
