Only a few people were out and about on this cool fall evening in Dubuque, Iowa. The light from the setting sun was sweeping down the side streets and I loved how it created patches of brilliant color on some of the buildings. I wanted to retain the freshness of a plein air piece even though I painted it in my studio.

In her figurative work, Mickey avoids overly specific or narrative details so that each viewer can interpret it in his or her own way.
