Twenty-five: MetroCenter Aircoil

Updated Painting Reference Maps

Twenty-four: Downtown Door 2

March 25th, 2011

Grungy brick and splitting plywood make this composition come alive.

Twenty-Three: Garage Rhythm

March 25th, 2011

The austerity of parking garages is delightfully broken up by various bits of dirt and buzzing fluorescent lights.

Twenty-two: Brentwood Sewer

March 25th, 2011

I’ve always been intrigued with secret, subterranean passageways. Sewers aren’t glamorous, but they hold the same intrigue. The rough, mildewy concrete and rusted iron are beautiful in their own right.

Fifteen: NaBriCo Building

Fourteen: NaBriCo Detail

February 22nd, 2011

February 12th, 2011
