One 57th Reflections

One 57th
Oil on canvas
24x24 inches

Just finished this painting of the VERY TALL building on 57th Street, scene of the collapsed crane after Hurricane Sandy fame.

The lower facade of the building sports metal ribbon-like structures which do create some interesting reflective surfaces. One late summer afternoon, as the sun was setting in the west, the metal ribbons caught the golden light which prompted me to grab my camera and take several photos. The older building across the street reflected on the facade was built as an artists building, graced with tall north facing windows.

Once again the new and the old, captured on canvas.
