Downtown Shadows, 7"x5", oil on linen/panel.
I have no idea what these small corner buildings were used as, this one is for sale or lease, which goes with the hard times in Detroit and Michigan in general. It was probably used as a small manufacturing plant, and is now unoccupied. The shadows and reflections make for an interesting painting. I enjoy documenting this era in Detroit, as I hope things will get better soon, and this will be a visual record. So many buildings over the last 20 years that I have painted are now gone. But they live on in the paintings I have done of them.
