The always elegant Chrysler building

Mr. Mark's Chrysler I
Oil on canvas
12x9 inches

A friend of mine works in a building with spectacular views in all directions. He shared this photograph with me and I thought it would make a wonderful subject for a painting. The light in the city changes constantly and in this particular view the dramatic sky surrounds the Chrysler building, one of New York City's most iconic and beloved buildings. This is a quiet and reflective painting, with all of the noise and activity of the streets out of sight and far below.
