Mi Central Station, interior detail

Mi Central Station, interior detail 
To a collector in Covesville, VA

 oil on linen/panel, 2010, 7x5"
Today's painting is a view inside the abandoned Michigan Central train station. I was really moved by the play of light on the tagged columns. It was serene and exciting at the same time.
I feel this is one of the more successful daily paintings I have done, I hope you like it.

Very Good Stephen!
This painting has the color and space to put the viewer in the scene.
I hope to be able to paint this well.

I love it. There’s something to be said for ruins. Great architecture stands up to the onslaughts of time and neglect.

Beautiful painting- I love the interplay of warm and cool light. I could see this one working as a large painting, too.
