Art is Art
This painting comes awful close to infringing on that 'painter of light' guy (oh geez, did I violate his trademark by using those words here?). There is a certain quality to the light in this painting that makes the architecture interesting, yet there is an indefinable quality that borders on pandering to 'popular' tastes. There are some that would call this 'great art' and there are some that would call this 'schlock art' (jig-saw puzzle art). Art is art, yet how does one deal with this issue in appreciating the hard work of a productive painter?
