To a collector in Fukuoka, Japan
This daily painting is an urban landscape of a building on Woodward Ave. This building no longer is standing. Detroit is trying to clear many abandoned buildings along Woodward Ave getting ready for a light rail system. They are also hoping to tear down 3,000 more vacant structures, many on Michigan Ave and Gratiot Ave, to prepare for  Re-Detroit. Click on link to see a current article in Metro-times.
