Today's painting is the first of a series of 1oo paintings of abandoned buildings or houses in Detroit. As I am driving around Detroit looking for subjects to paint, I am always amazed at how many abandoned buildings there are. Many of these have been empty for a long time-not just from the current downturn but has this has been an ongoing problem for our city for many years. I may do a book on these images when I finish the project.
