View of a rooftop


 View of a rooftop
Oil on linen/panel, 2010, 5x5"
To a collector in Rancho Santa Fe, CA
This daily painting is an urban landscape of a view of a snow covered water tank  and rooftop. This is a view you see as you are driving into and leaving Detroit. I  painted  a similar larger view in the mid eighties when I first stared painting Detroit scenes. This scene still inspires me today.

Hey Steve-

I appreciate many things about your paintings. One aspect I like is the perspective you often choose. They are dramatic and uncommon; behind the sign, from across a snow covered street, underneath a bridge...

I see the tired Detroit landscape I've seen a thousand times before fresh through your eyes.
