ABC Building

ABC Building    1997    oil on linen    22x36”     collection of Michael Pomerance

This was a treatment center in downtown Rochester for alcoholics and people coming off of drugs.

This painting was finished in Philadelphia using photos and a small oil sketch I did on the streets of Rochester days before we left. It features that look that I've found myself favoring, of a valley created by buildings on either side of a painting, with a foreground shadow and a colorful, industrial building at the end of the road, what I’ll call a "worthwhile destination" or "distant destination" painting.
