Corktown Shadows, #2000




Corktown Shadows, #2000
Oil on linen panel,  5x7" 2015

#2,000 in the 'Postcard from Detroit' painting series.

This urban landscape painting is a view of stacked buildings on Michigan Ave in Detroit. 
The building is a view of the Corktown Tavern.

I liked the contrast of the vertical lines against the horizontal rectangles, and the exposed red brick road

I would like to thank all my clients, collectors and friends who have been so supportive of this little adventure. I had no idea that I would still enjoy doing these small tributes to Detroit.
