Dancing Kansas City Cityscape – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor & Ink

I am having so much fun doing these city paintings, since I do so many rural scenes.   I hope they go over well at KC show, because I am sure going to have a lot of them.  🙂

About Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde, the clever, colorful Anglo-Irish writer, is best known for the play The Importance of Being Earnest and the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. He was born in Dublin in 1854 but left when his lady love became engaged to Bram Stoker. He was a leading member of the aesthetic movement and embraced its doctrine, “Art for art’s sake.” Though married with two children, Wilde was known to have affairs with younger men and was jailed in 1895 for “gross indecency.” He died in November 1900.

    Very cool! This one reminds me a bit of SimCity (2000 or 3000) and some of the cool apartment and city buildings. Wonderful color and detail!
