6 of 6 | closeup of “The Walking Man, vol. 1” - check our feed to see all of one of our most popular works of art. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Original - 16”x20” oils with palette knife. Sold! Art canvases still available.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I painted this almost a year ago, as an experiment in my palette knife art.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was experiencing a rough time, and wanted to express my need for finding joy in the dark.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you know anything about me, you’ll know that I’m more of a beach person, than a city person.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So exploring how to find the light in the midst of the dark was a wonderful exploration into finding my own joy in the moment.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The glowing streetlights.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The warm, inviting doorways.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The brilliant horizon.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The striking reflections of the light on the dark pavement.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It wouldn’t me much of an exaggeration to say that this painting was key to getting through a dark winter.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And now, on the other side, I love reflecting on it, and finding even more light in the dark places. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Oilpainting #canvasart #oilpaintingishard #oilpaintingmakesyourroomsmellofchemicalsalldaylong #visualartist #handmadeart #skyscraper #skyscrapers #citybuildings #oilpaintingofinstagram #oilpaintings #paintedlayers #oilpaintingforsale #paintedsky #stormysky #skiesofinstagram #oilpaintingartist #oilpaintinginprogress #oilpaintingart #paintingoftheday #paintingaddict #artaddict #oilpaintingsoncanvas #OilPaintingArtists #worldofart #oilpaintingtechniques #justpaintit #oilpaintingsforsale #oilpaintingforsales #paintingforfun
I love this building. Don’t ask me why. I just do. It seems as if the architect said “I’m putting this gold dome on top because I want to.” Bold move. Especially considering the times it was designed and built. Growing up it used to be Riggs Bank. I recall some Saturday mornings as a child, Ma Dukes would bring me down here from Petworth just to explore where she grew up and evolved. That was far for us back then. Crazy. I know. She met my Pops here, went to school, worked here. I vividly remember her stories about how she never really liked this area. She shared with me how growing up in DC during the 50s - 80s, segregation was real. I mean really real. Nah, like really real. The DC government never wanted to place city bus routes or a metro station close to access this part of town, well because those that lived here didn’t want black people in their neighborhood. A host of other things happened here but we will save that for another post. During my high school years and even as an adult this was probably the only part of the city we had cool stores to shop at. It was where you could stunt and buy expensive name brands. All for nothing now that I look back at that era of my life. Times have changed, but I feel a bit of that energy that Ma Dukes shares with me (even to this day) still in the air when I walk around here. So fast forward, now that I’ve traveled the world, experienced some unimaginable experiences with my wife and son, accomplished some things. Maybe I owe Ma Dukes, G-Mama, and every other native Washingtonian that gets overlooked around here something. Maybe I was born to travel the world and redefine home for those that don’t see it as a possibility. Maybe I have to crack this city wide open from a natives perspective and a global citizens perspective. Now I’m not discrediting anyone that’s not from this area doing great work in this city. I admire them. I know some of them. But unfortunately for the native Washingtonians to really be respected in this city you have to leave to become. All I’m saying is you can’t exclude us from the change. Save this post. Screenshot it. Hold me accountable. DC is the base. The world is my office.

The Sentinel building was developed in 1906 by political boss, Abe Ruef, at the height of his power. Nearing completion, all but its steel frame was destroyed in the 1906 earthquake and fire. It was soon rebuilt, but Ruef was unable to use it as his headquarters for five years as he was at San Quentin Prison. It's now used by Francis Ford Coppola's production company and cafe. #sanfrancisco #americanzoetrope #cafezoetrope #sentinelbuilding #columbustowersanfrancisco #bythings #sfarchitecture #citybuildings

It might not be immediately obvious where this Then & Now is focused, because every building in the 1910 view has been replaced or reconfigured in the last century.
