"Copleston"

10 x 2-7/8"
oil on masonite

Early in the morning, heading out of Charleston, I pulled over to plug in my GPS - facing this old, abandoned building that was once Copleston Laundry. It's one of those moments when I saw the finished painting in my head. I suppose I appreciate old buildings for what they are - but more so, I see form, color, composition. I tried very hard not to tighten up on this, hoping the minimalism stayed put.

I love this old building. And the subtle value shifts in the building really bring it to life.

The light is gorgeous, and the character of the building shows in your paint.
