ONE BUILDING X THREE

Those of you who have been visiting this blog know of my fondness for architecture. I have written about recyciling paintings and painting in series. Today I thought it would be interesting to look at three paintings of the same subject, each created with a slightly different approach. The structure, which looks like it belongs in the plains of the midwest and/or Canada, actually sits in the middle of a small farming community in rural southern New Jersey, just a few miles from my hometown. I love this building because each side reveals a different set of clutter and texture.



This was the first painting, pastel on illustation board, and my first piece accepted into the PSA's anual juried show.



My second effort, a mixed media on panel which is currenly in my gallery.



The third effort, pastel on illustration board.
