"BOBBLE HEAD AT 2:32 AM"

Funny how somethings catch your eye, particularly when your tiered and you can just set back , leave the driving to a stranger, with no obligation to make small conversation to no conclusion. This is just one of those moments. I was caught by the abstraction of the rain, mist, and condensation on the windshield of my ride to the hotel. Sleepily and happily I was able to let my mind drift to the nondescript humming of the driver. After a time of just staring at the bobble head I knew, here is my next painting. Putting my camera up to an already blurry eye , I click off one shot just in time as my ride ends pulling up to the hotel and long awaiting sleep.

Gerald - your perspective on what is everyday and how it can be made art is outstanding. I love these night scenes.

Gerald, this is fabulous! Although it could be any city,I'm from Chicago, and this reminds me of the many times I drove in and out of the loop in the rain. Captured beautifully!
