Eric has captured the spirit and festivities of a classic 4th of July celebration in his painting of Kansas City. This night scene is set aglow with fireworks and city lights, a city known for its contributions to the musical styles of jazz and blues as well as to cuisine, notably Kansas City-style barbecue. With over 200 fountains, Kansas City's official nickname is the City of Fountains. In the foreground of this painting you can see the iconic Henry Wollman Bloch Memorial Fountain set in front of Union Station.
