Down Under

Down Under
Oil on linen/panel, 2010, 7"x5"
Today's daily painting is an urban landscape detail of the Dequindre Cut
looking up under a bridge that spans the below grade railbed. I was really taken with the sliver of light penetrating the darkness  illuminating the graffiti tags below.

I love what you do with light and composition in this. With its vaulting arch it’s like the interior of a very old church. The texture also is amazing.

Stephen! I invision you as a sort of 'Indiana Jones' of Detroit. You get into some interesting places and see things, or present things that have always been there, but not recognized until you point it out!
(Do you carry a whip?)
Fun painting, and interesting art!

This painting really stood out for me on the Daily Painters Gallery page today Steven. Love the big shapes and the abstractness of it all.
