The streets are not alive with the sound of music...

  I photographed (not scanned, that's why it's crude) one of my early architectural pieces for today's www.illustrationfriday.com  City theme. I think I painted this after yet another Zombie attack on the streets of somewhere.  Zombie attacks are of course all too common these days. I hope they never hurt any kittens or puppies on their thoughtless and whining Zombie rampages.  But let's get back to my painting.  It seems deserted, quiet and downright devoid of life. Like the empty streets after an aforementioned attack.   But it is an eager study of Terra cotta tiles.  A personal favorite to paint when I work on fine art pieces.  Something I haven't done enough of lately.  I love to paint old texture, mysterious stairways and archways.

B/W

Black and White.  The preferred method of viewing post Zombie zones.  At least in old movies.  :)

I'm loving the texture of those terra cotta tiles especially in the B/W version.

Pesky zombies, they really are a pain when trying to mow the lawn or take the dog for a walk. I understand however they are terrified of cats.

Finally a post that is not about FOOD but instead about zombies. I'm certain, Sharon, that you are testing me... :-)
