Del-Ray Sunset

Del Ray Sunset

Oil on Birch panel, 2012, 5"x 5"


The painting features a tug boat on the Rouge River inlet right off of the Detroit river with its lights twinkling in the oncoming darkness. The tug had just passed a drawbridge I was standing on when the alarm sounded and the bridge started doing its thing. I felt privileged to be there to witness what I thought was remarkable, but to the workers on the boat and the bridge operator I'm sure it was just business as usual.
