 Mid-afternoon on Moffett 
9" x 12"    oil on canvas

Anybody who has sat in traffic, waiting for the train to go by so they could get into downtown Mountain View,  will recognize this scene. Moffett Blvd. has long been an unimposing route to our downtown, but that is all changing. The low, modest buildings are on their way out so that a high-rise, high-rent complex can be built. Gone will be the old social service building and an old garage next to it, along with those tall beautiful trees and the "mountain view" behind them. Fortunately the building on the corner - once Joe's Auto Supply, is still here (for now). I wanted to paint this scene so people around here might look at the painting one day and say  "...yeah, I remember how it used to be!"

 This piece is painted on all sides — it can be framed, or you can just hang it, as it is.
