This is a painting that I just finished, a copy of a photograph. Apparently, this station just sits empty. I have a thing for giant, empty buildings.
It's a little 9" by 12" acrylic painting on recycled plywood (the wood is from the Habitat ReStore- love that place).
Before the painting, I thought this was a beautiful, haunting building. After the painting, all I can say is it has a lot of windows. I didn't count them, but I'm not sure what I was thinking, doing such a small painting of something with so much detail! Yikes! I wonder why they built it so tall, with so many windows?
Well, I did it! Every last window-- at least, I think so. Forgive me for my shameless commerce, but it is for sale for $50. If you would like to purchase it, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some more detailed shots (click on them to make them bigger):
I'm sorry it has no dinosaurs, robots, or cats. I hope you can enjoy it, anyway. :)
P.S. Afterthought: Would it look better with cats? Should I add some cats? Leave a comment, if you have a strong opinion. If it doesn't sell without cats, I might just add a pussy or two.
P.P.S. This piece is now sold. No kitties will grace the steps of Michigan Central Station-- at least, not in this painting.
