SB on 23rd Street

SB on 23rd Street
Oil on canvas
24x24 inches

Just finished this painting of the former Stern Brothers Department store on 23rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Manhattan. The area between 23rd and 14th Streets was known as the "Ladies Miles" once and was the destination for shoppers. A Home Depot now occupies the space.

I was drawn to this subject as it had the wonderful Beaux Arts architectural details I so enjoy along with some really interesting reflections in the beautiful arched windows.

Keep looking up as you walk around the city, you'll never know what you might find.
