MICHIGAN

MICHIGAN 
Abandoned, Portraits of Detroit #71
 Oil on linen/panel, 2010, 7"x5"
SOLD
To a collector in Adelaide, Australia
Today's daily painting is a corner building in Delray, one of the worst hit areas of Detroit. MICHIGAN, the image here tells a lot about the state of our economy, but it also leaves much out. Detroit and Michigan are still viable places to live and create. The young people are really taking the city on with their creativity. There are many opportunities for those willing to take a chance. Our local art scene is second to none and is very adaptive, creative and thriving.

This ship has been laid-up more than 2 years at this location. According to Great Lakes Ships, 30 lakers did not sail this last year.
