Michigan Central Station Train-sheds
Oil on linen/panel, 2011, 5x7"
Today's oil painting is an urban landscape of the train-sheds at the iconic Michigan Central Station on Michigan Ave in Detroit. These sheds were 250 feet wide by 1,104 feet long.and covered eleven tracks. They are no longer standing. This is from a photo I took in the mid 80's.

Terrific painting! I hope you make some of these smaller paintings available as postcard sized prints someday- they're inspirational.
