Empire City Iron Works

LIC continued

LIC/ Empire City Iron Works
Oil on canvas
8 x 10 inches

Still busy painting Long Island City scenes and I now have over 20 paintings completed with more ready to be worked on for the upcoming show in December. So many new high-rise developments are taking over the neighborhood these days, but vestiges of the light manufacturing area LIC is can still be found. Empire City Iron Works has several buildings in the area and this sign really pops out of the landscape. Decided to do a painting of this site as it is part of the history of LIC and lends a sense of what a mixed-use community this still is.

You will one day be known as the painter who kept Long Island City history alive. They're very beautiful paintings and I'm looking forward to your show.
