I live near this small city, Reading, PA. Back when my Grandmother was young (in the 30's), Reading was the place to go... shopping, dancing, working... but through the 20th century, it suffered the fate of many small towns across the U.S. It fell to the wayside and started becoming a not so great place to go anymore. But... in the past 10 years or so, Reading is making a comeback... the art scene is huge (and growing fast!) and great things are happening every day. This is just one scene of Reading, (with it's iconic Pagoda Peeking in the distance) that I see on a regular basis and it beckons me to paint it, every time I see it from just this spot. I had my camera with me the other day, and (yes, it's true) I was snapping pictures of this as I passed over Penn Street Bridge. I promise, I was paying attention to the road...
