LIC Courthouse Reflections 2019

Study for LIC Courthouse Reflections 2019
Oil on canvas panel
6x6 inches

I've been working on a series of small studies for possible larger paintings and was pleased with this one. The venerable Long Island City Courthouse sits amid a massive amount of construction and development these days. The beautiful old building, constructed in 1874 and remodeled in 1904 is reflected in a nearby new glass residental building. The Court Square area is unrecognizable as I walk around these days and I was glad to find this view which highlights the old and the new sitting side by side. Having painted the Courthouse several times over the years, I am still struck by its stately elegance.
