The Old MillSave Favorites
I painted this piece in downtown Atlanta, GA. There was something about this old scene/building that drew me right in...like a moth to a flame you could say. I love painting these old industrial scenes at night, and nocturnes in general, but this one had me for more than what met the eye. Surrounded by newly renovated apartments, I felt I was painting a portrait of an old man who'd "been there and done that." And now while on his deathbed - with the city sounds and crisp smell of fall whipping around - I guess you could say I was lucky enough to have shared a cup-o-joe with the ol fella.
