This is wonderful Stephen! Fantastic ambiance and perspective work, of course. Love the subtly contrasting surfaces. Another really great painting!

I don't comment often, but this one strikes me. How on Earth did you noticed this?!

What a painting!! But for that matter I find most of your painting a joy to watch.

Thanks Aliaena, Rene being inside this abandoned monster is very humbling and awe-inspiring. The silence reminds me of being out west. The decay is very sad, I don't think it can ever be saved.

I love it! What an amazing representation of something that is passed by and never seen!

How on earth did you get inside? They lock up all the abandoned old buildings around here!

Excellent job!!

Yeah, you just have to find a hole in the fence and sneak in, it's a little scary being in there by yourself but sure worth it.
