Harper Ave House
Oil on linen/panel, 2011, 7x5"
To a collector in West Hollywood, CA
Today's oil painting is an urban landscape of an abandoned house on Harper Ave. There are houses like this all over Detroit. Click here to see yesterday's NY Times article about this odd challenge.

Beautiful painting yesterday, Stephen. Harper Ave House
Very interesting article, too. I just rode the train from here in New Mexico to Chicago, and noticed a lot of people-less homes, as opposed to homeless people.
Whole towns from my youth have shriveled to near nothing as a result of the interstate passing them by. I can scarcely imagine the situation in Detroit. Tragic and such a waste.
I hope your New York show will be a great success.
