DETROIT STORIES... ORIGINAL SMALL OIL PAINTINGS
OF DETROIT BY STEPHEN MAGSIG
Creepy. I grew up on a crummy little dirt road with two houses in the middle of nowhere. One of them looked like this, and when we were kids we used to pretend an old ghost woman could be seen looking out the window.
Thanks Ambera, sometimes we under estimate the power of art to provoke us or to make us think or bring back memories. I didn't think the house was creepy when I painted it, some times I am more interested in the subject as a vehicle for color and form.
I agree, I think that's one of the most interesting things about paintings is their ability to bring about individual experiences. There's only so much you can control as the artist.
