Cordage Park 5x7

Here's the finish.
While on my mission over there, I collected some of the broken window glass, which is purple. I've loved those windows and have been skulking around this place for years in all seasons but never got a successful painting. Something about the scale is intimidating. These buildings were quite something in their day. I hope when they go condo, they'll be able to save the brick buildings. Sorry about the crappy photo. I'm shooting these at home when the studio would be better. Uh oh. I had to edit this because I chose the wrong photo and published, so I think my subscribers are going to get the same picture I last published. I don't know if when you edit the post and republish, it sends it out again. Sorry about that ;)

I apologize for this lousy photo as I didn't want to edit it again. The color is way better than it looks here.

Wow Mary! I thought I would visit your blog and I am very impressed, I love your work. Plein Air is a passion of mine. It looks like you have many places that inspire your plein air work. I will definitely keep you on my list!

I love the colour just the way it is and now I'm going to spend long and useless hours praying for someone to gift me with purple stained glass windows.

Photography is tricky! I'm sure in real life it just pops. I'm still not getting your postings in the mail anymore. I'll sign up again!

I like the colors just as they are. Plus you had quite an adventure getting this painting.

And need I say STAY AWAY from this area????? Do you remember about 15 years ago a woman was held here and murdered - it was possible because it was so remote! PLEASE I don't want to be worrying about you!

Okie doke, Kelley.
I don't think that the security guard would find a repeat performance by me, amusing, anyway.
