After a hiatus


After having this painting on hiatus for the last number of months I have finally decided to finish it and get it off the wall. I have about two weeks before the official move and would like to have it finalized by then. The only problem is it is huge. Measurements are 52 inches wide by 64 inches tall just on the image, not the canvas sizing. But I know I can get it done and have a good closure to this studio space. The image itself is of the Mill City Museum which is on the banks of the Mississippi here in Minneapolis. I really like how they have constructed this beautiful new museum out of the ruins of an old grain elevator. It is definitely a must see if you are here in the cities at all.

A print of this would go well in my "private collection" of Minneapolis works...

Giclees of this one are already in the works Jake. I will have to wait though till I am done with the painting.
