At the Empire State Building 8×10


I painted this from a photograph my father took in the seventies. It was a Kodachrome slide and the colors had started to change a little by the time we rescued it and converted it to digital. I decided to keep a little of that Kodachrome weirdness in the colors. It was such a revelation to me to see Manhattan in its old dingy state, the buildings so grimy. This is Fifth Avenue, and that’s the bottom of the Empire State Building on the right.

This is 8 x 10 inches, oil on a 3/4 inch thick cradled panel. The sides are painted black and it would be easy to hang it unframed. The painting has been varnished with a light satin varnish.

Paintings are signed on the back in marker.

SHIPPING: Please be sure to choose a shipping address where a package may be safely delivered! I will carefully wrap and ship your painting by US Priority Mail or FedEx Ground. You’ll be charged only $4.95 for shipping within the United States, and $35 for shipping worldwide.

FRAMING: I recommend framing in a simple floater frame such as this one from Ampersand. It comes with risers so that the frame can accommodate many different panel depths. These are sold by Blick and many other frame shops. You do not need to put an oil painting behind glass.
