Completing this watercolor was especially significant for me. As a lifelong architecture buff - and Cleveland fan - I have always enjoyed the Cleveland skyline from different vantage points, but this atmospheric view was unique and it almost took my breath away.
As I walked up on the 10th floor terrace the city unfolded in front of me. As I took it all in, I was drawn to the feeling of the city rising out of the fog. It was a powerful symbolism because of the many struggles Cleveland has endured. When I saw the skyline with both the Key tower and the grand old lady - Terminal Tower - highlighted against the horizon, I felt compelled to capture it in watercolor.
