Syracuse Poster Project Banner

When I think of Syracuse, I picture the skyline of buildings and the Syracuse University Dome. But when I read Nastís haiku, I immediately pictured the view of the city from a distance, from the beautiful farmland and open fields surrounding the city. I also thought about Monetís Impressionistic hay bales and the sparking reflections on the water.

In my painting, I wanted to combine the geometric edges of the cityscape along the water as they played against the circular disks of the hay in the outlying landscape.

The silhouettes in the field and tiny airplane banner in the sky bring humanity into the equation of concrete plus farmland equals the Syracuse we love.

yellow rounds of hay
cast shadows in stubbled field
sun slips behind hills
