Astor Place

"Golden Astor Reflections"
Oil on panel
6 x 6 inches

Another small panel study today, one that I hope will become a larger painting sometime in the future. An ultra modern, undulating building sprang up on Astor Place several years ago, unlike anything in the surrounding Village neighborhood. Not sure I like this building but I do love the reflections and the changing light that plays upon this unusual facade. I have painted this building before and will no doubt paint many more as it presents wonderful and changing reflections.

I took the photo that this painting is based on at the end of the day, when the sun was casting beautiful golden tones on the older building reflected in the facade. If you find yourself at Astor Place one day, this is a building you definitely will not miss.
