Empire City Iron Works

Oil on canvas
18 x 24 inches

One last painting to share for 2012.

I was commissioned to paint this Long Island City building after my May exhibit. A 3rd generation business, a manufacturer that can still be found in a Long Island City neighborhood where so many small manufacturing concerns have moved away. Since the development of the neighborhood continues at a brisk pace, the owner thought having a painting of his family's long established business would be appropriate.

I enjoyed painting the brickwork and detail in this painting and I'm happy to say that the owner was pleased with the result.

Looking forward to seeing what comes off my easel in 2013.
