A snazzy former stable on 38th Street

George Bowdoin Stable
Oil on canvas
9 x 6 inches

It's been awhile since I've posted some of my new work, so here goes.

I've been working on a project about the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan and have completed several paintings and pen and ink sketches over the last several months. This one is my favorite. I noticed a neat little former stable on 38th Street built in 1902 that has some very eye-catching details. I especially liked the bulldog perched on top. Folks, you gotta keep looking up while you're walking around town, you never know what visual delights you'll encounter.
