This venerable apartment building in Chevy Chase is now called 4701 Willard, but many people still know it by its old name, The Irene. I was attracted to the golden light on the rooftop; it looked like an Italian village, sort of. Yes, the vertical shadow on the left is distracting; I was so eager to add darks that I overdid this one. I'll tone it down later.
As I painted I noticed figures on top of the roof, and a couple seemed to be sprinting! Passersby explained to me that there are tennis courts or swimming pools or something athletic up there.
