Sometimes my city scapes reflect the surroundings of the city in warm and cool neutral tones.  Morning in NYC is an example of that.  Other times I am more interested in patterns of the city and the mood of the day so the colors reflect my mood.  You can see that in Fresh Fruit to Go.  In A Day in the Capital, the painting is really about the people roaming the mall, venturing into museums, and visiting the Capitol Building.  

It was a beautiful day in DC, there were a lot of visitors, so I decided to start with "happy" colors in the sky, which are repeated in the visitors' clothing. I think the contrast between the colorful backdrop and the neutral tones of the United States Capitol Building lends majesty and strength to the building.
