Description One of a series of pastel illustrations of Washington DC landmarks. This angle is the back side (not the typical view) and there is a traffic circle here where the cars rush off from Memorial Bridge. I felt that the movement of the traffic made the building seem all the more monumental, even though everyone whizzes by and seems to ignore it -- much like those of us who take so much for granted every day.
