The building on the right is a vegetarian restaurant. The large pole is the base of a large billboard set in a garden of herbs. I thought that it made an interesting statement. At ground level first glance it is pretty surreal.

Downriver Shadows, SOLD

click here to bid on eBay
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.
