Building on Our Past, New Painting

 Building On Our Past
30” x 35”  Oil on Canvas

This recently completed painting depicts the historic Foshay Tower; once the tallest building in Minneapolis, being overshadowed by the bridge which connects the two Twin Cities over the Mississippi River.

This tower stood as the pinnacle of the Minneapolis skyline, but it was surpassed in rapid succession during the 1970s and onwards. Now, it is mostly shrouded in shadows by the buildings which dwarf it. Yet, even in the shadows of its progeny, reverence is still given to this obelisk of a bygone era.

It has borne witness to the changing landscape, and yet it endures as building on our past continues.

It was only a matter of time, until I figured out how to make an animate gif!
So here it is, my first attempt at an animated gif!

It has been added at the header for the website. 
Don't worry, it doesn't loop like this on the website.
That would be..... insane.

Sorry for hiding away! It's been crazy these past several weeks:
