Hi Stephen,

Love this painting.. You visit some lonely areas for these.

So I was wondering, do you set up on location or paint from photos or sketches?

Hi Jeff,

Detroit has some lonely places that make great subjects. I normally work from photo. It is a time factor, I just can't find enough to do everything.

Stephen you sure take it two steps further to simplify a scene...breaking it down to it's basic shapes. I love it. I bet you had fun placing those vertical lines (poles)...great color... great painting! Yes, it does evoke a lonely feeling... as do your abandoned house and building paintings.
