Pittsburgh's North Shore

There is no denying my love for Pittsburgh. I was so lucky to have the chance to travel the country after graduation, and although I loved every minute of it, it completely reassured me of how much I love this great city. I read recently that Hermoine, I mean Emma Watson, said that she was dreading having to live and work here while filming The Perks of Being A Wallflower, and at the end it turned out being one of her favorite places in the world. Crazy, huh? You'd never think that a little Brit like her would end up loving this city.

Anyway, I can ramble on for hours about all the great restaurants, shops, scenery, and hidden gems of Pittsburgh, but I'm going to make the rest of this simple. The North Shore is amazing. How can it not be? It's home to the Steelers and the Pirates, some great sports bars, a beautiful view of the city, The Warhol and other great museums and much more. Every single time I get through the city and start going across the bridge I get butterflies. The view of the stadiums, especially when there's a game that day, just takes my breath away. Cheesy, I know, but I can't help it.

I took a little walk to other day--one of those days at work--and found myself in where else, the North Shore. Check it out.

  1. Good details and contrast between dark shadows and white areas. You may know the work of the Greek-Italian surrealist artist Giorgio de Chirico, much of whose work you can browse at wahooart.com. This one, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWHDW, has the same feel as your drawings.
