Early Sunday Morning


look closer

Think about your neighborhood. How is the place pictured here similar to or different from where you live? 

Where do you see shadows in this painting? 

What might be causing these shadows? 

What time of day do you think it is? How can you tell? 

What patterns do you notice in this painting? 

If you could add two things to this painting, what would they be? Why?
