This Painting is my first large panoramic view of the city. I have been painting and drawing the city of Grand Rapids on and off for the past 25 years. This particular view which is looking north from the Wealthy Street Overpass is my favorite view. The city is dynamic and ever changing. To make art in response to this dynamic energy has become second nature to me. It is my hope that in some small way I am contributing to the vibrant life pulse that is Grand Rapids Michigan.
The painting will be on display at Peppino's Pizzeria Sports Grill at 130 Ionia Avenue SW Grand Rapids from September 22-October 10, 2015 for ArtPrize 7. The voting number is 61933
