Fanciful 14th Street

"14th Street Fancy"
Oil on panel
6 x 6 inches

Back to the studio and painting after the upheaval of Hurricane Sandy.

Took the opportunity to paint this small study of a faded beauty of a building I've long had my eye on. Located on a bustling corner of 14th Street and Sixth Avenue it is still scene of commerce. Cast your eyes up and wonderful terra cotta embellishments abound on the facade. This kind of fanciful ornamentation seems to be a thing of the past, so when I come upon one of these architectural detailed gems I rejoice.

Oops, think this is on the corner of 7th Avenue, not 6th :-).
