The Murray

I'm having a show in January featuring Landscapes & Cityscapes. I only have 4 pieces completed that are NOT landscapes, so I decided I should see what photos I had or go take some. I found a series of photos I took of buildings in Livingston, Montana, and decided to work on one of the historic Murray Hotel. (You may have caught the episode of Anthony Bourdain's show a few year's ago where he
dined at the Murray with local author, Jim Harrison, and painter, Russell Chatham; the small photo is from the Travel Channel website.) I liked this view showing the fabulous sign, the bicycle parked out front, and the mountain at the end of the street. This is a 24"H x 18"W collage on cradled panel.
