Rush Hour VII and VIII, 60 x 45cm, Oil on canvas, 2011

The Rush Hour Series continues. These two are more of the build up to the Rush Hour, they are not all that congested but this is how it starts. One, two three, ten, twenty and then the whole place is a congested mess!!

RUSH HOUR VII





RUSH HOUR VIII

I hope you had a good birthday. Love those images of the people traveling in their own little worlds.

Thanks Blu! I sure did! Each person is in their own little world-it's another way to look at it!

Happy (belated) birthday, Adebanji! You have really challenged yourself with the crowds of people, but have done a stellar job with the paintings.

adebanji said...

Thanks Edward! Yes, the crowds were a challenge and that's what keeps me going back to this series-the trick is to treat each individual as a portrait sketch.
