Entries in cityscape (7)
Lynchburg, Virginia, styles itself as The City of Seven Hills, thereby setting up a rather hopeless competition with a certain world metropolis you may have heard of. It felt like I climbed four of the seven, to catch the sunset before going in to see a benefit concert for the Lynchburg Academy of Fine Arts. When I got to the top, in a parking lot amid rooftops at Sixth and Clay, I still couldn’t see most of the sunset for the tree-lined street on my left. So I decided to paint it anyway, within the trees.
