Absorbed by History?

"Linden and Broadway"  SOLD
oil on panel, 2009
3.5" x 5" (7.62cm x 12.7cm)

Another cityscape of Long Beach looking west down Broadway. The tall building buried in the backround is the same one depicted in my previous post 'State of Limbo' ( "Acres of Books"). The sun is setting just north of this brick monolith, the exact location of the now defunct bookstore, Acres of Books. Will the bricks remain or will they too be absorbed by history?10

  1. This photo instantly takes me to a state of relaxation and closeness to this neighborhood. Long Beach is a city with so different communities, no matter where you're from, you feel instantly transported to feeling like one of the locals.
