St. Mary's Corner in LIC

A neighborhood landmark

"St. Mary's Corner in LIC"
Oil on canvas
10 x 8 inches

Today's painting is a new commissioned piece that I recently completed. St. Mary's Church on Vernon Blvd. in LIC is a real landmark in the neighborhood and its steeple can be seen far and wide. I was commissioned to do this painting for someone who had grown up in the neighborhood and whose mom still lives nearby. The church held many fond memories for "Fee" and I hope she likes the finished painting. I was happy to do another painting of this church as I see it every day and recognize its importance to the community. And I'm a sucker for trying to paint those old wrought-iron fences too.
