Midtown View

Midtown View
Oil on linen/panel, 2010, 5"x5"
To a collector in Bavaria, Germany
Today's daily painting is an urban landscape of Midtown buildings with clouds behind. What interested me in this view was the contrast of the rich dark foreground against the very light sky. I also liked the very close values in the buildings making them work as one unit.

Stephen another of your wonderful paintings of old buildings. I too love the old architecture of buildings and I am saddened at how many of these beautiful old buildings have been abandoned and left to ruin. Your paintings have preserved many of them~~~

I like the close values too Stephen - they add a rich dimension which goes deep. Your work lately seems to be getting more abstract in a fascinating way.
