Michigan Ave Doorway

Michigan Ave Doorway
Oil on linen/panel, 2012, 5x5"
This daily painting is an urban landscape view of a colorful doorway "No 7"on Michigan Ave. There is an interesting story to this painting. As I was shooting the photo I noticed a car speeding towards me from three lanes over. I ran and jumped to the sidewalk just in time as the car swerved to hit me. Very scary, this is the first time something like this has happened in twenty years of shooting Detroit. Photographer friend Bruce Giffin said the same thing happened to him recently. Hope this is not a new trend.

The Green Roof, No. 1,600
Oil on linen/panel, 2012, 7x5"
This daily painting is the 1,600th daily painting I have finished since starting "Postcards from Detroit" in August of 2007. Many, many thanks to everyone who has supported this blog. It has been a wonderful adventure and as I approach the five year anniversary I feel there will be some changes made in what I paint and post on this blog. Perhaps some slightly larger paintings, En Plein Air paintings, paintings from other cities and other countries, and maybe not one every day. What do you think?
