The Night Pantry
This is a painting that I did a while back called, "Night Pantry". It is 30x50 inches, a fairly large oil on canvas. It was painted in 2002, and has remained one of my more popular works. Now I've got a giclee print of "Night Pantry" in the works, it'll be a limited edition of 75 signed prints.
The older urban areas have always captivated my interest, this building has been around since the 1930's in downtown LA. I wanted to paint a nocturne because I think it's one of the most challenging things to paint. The evening I went there to photograph, I happened to get lucky with the light, just after sunset but before it's too dark.
