Work in Progress: Building Streetscapes

Some new work in progress in the studio... A new landscape brooch about the ten-story apartment building that's blocking my view of Fleming Park. I've been looking at this building for a while - it's very hard not to! This building makes a small appearance as the tall walls in Fleming Park (spring, sunset), which is shown on the back of the Local Colour catalogue. I also mentioned the story of this work in progress toward the end of my Local Colour artist talk at Studio 20/17 in July. Only once has this drab concrete monstrosity appeared beautiful, and that one time it caught the light of the sunset and was stunning. This is it!

Another landscape brooch in the making: this one is where Westgarth Street meets Merri Parade, on the first day that of evening light as the days are getting longer in midwinter. This one has a ways to go before it's finished, but what a sight the light was bouncing off the grass next to the railroad that day!
