Woodward Ave Rooftop

Woodward Ave Rooftop
oil on linen/panel, 2009, 7x5"
Today's painting is a view looking up from Woodward Ave. in Highland Park. I like the way the warm bricks and copper roof work against the deep cobalt January sky. This is one of my wife's favorite buildings along Woodward Ave. The whole building  was vacated this winter, I think it was with the landlord not paying the utilities and they were shut off. Such a shame.

You are right: such a shame.
I can imagine this building could be full of artist's studios. The same way how artists brought the life in run down Greenwich Village, long tome ago.
