State Capitol 5 a.m. The capitol building is at 2300 N. Lincoln Blvd in Oklahoma City.
I shot it from my car using my iPhone. Once I captured the scene, I converted it to inks, based upon the pixels of the what the phone captured. The fragile nature of the image (with the phone pushed to the limit in the darkness) meant that I had a fabulous sky. It reminds me of Starry Night by Van Gough.
I have used inks on canvas to create this piece 18x20 on archival linen and ready to hang.
It is attached to a hardwood frame with a wire hanger so it is ready to display on the wall. JimRode uses a hardwood frame for longevity. (Real canvas is attached to that!) Archival ink of course, and premium canvas are used by Jim. (Caution: Some commercial artists go cheap and print on art board, folding the board edges to make a thick edge and then glue the folds to form a wrap box. In a few years, that glue gives way.)
