City at Sunset

This ATC was done for swapper bluehighways who won the January WTA (winner takes all) Commission an ATC contest.  The theme she assigned all of us was “anything city.”  For some reason, an orangey-purple city sunset popped into my head when I read the theme.  I started creating the buildings silhouetted against the orange sky and T.S. Elliot popped into my head.  So after water-coloring the background and layering the black buildings, I printed the stanza from “Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” onto transparency film and adhered it to the sky.
