This is a painting of the United Artist Marquee, the building is still standing but the marquee is gone.
There are so many wonderful buildings that I have painted over the last twenty-five plus years that are no longer standing. The paintings stand as a visual record of their existence. Sadly in Detroit so many are just destroyed and not renovated or restored as in other cities.

Just brilliant, the orange against the blue sky, the chrome effect really gives this one, the WOW factor!

awesome painting.. esp the colors. This is painted so tight it looks like a big painting.

You found some great shadows, Stephen. The older buildings have so much character. When they are destroyed, so many cities replace them with generic uniformity. With your painted records, you get to keep them standing.

Great job, Steve. This piece just sings with powerful simplicity and vibrant color.

Everytime I think I've decided on a favorite, you post something that tops it. If I weren't a broke art student I'd buy this one in a heartbeat.
