This began as an abstract. However, while the composition was good it didn't convey the feeling I was looking for. I love the narration that the architecture of buildings creates along a skyline. So, the abstract was sliced into creating a vista evoking the jagged lines and angles of a cityscape. The pant leg of a recycled pair of denims was used for the background; the faded and worn texture reminded me of the heavens early in the morning. The sun rising over the city, lifting the curtains of darkness revealing a soft, faded indigo and the start of a new beginning...my favorite time of the day.
