5th Story Walkup

Piece description from the artist

One of a series of paintings I recently did about Bangor Maine. Something quite incredible about that Northern Latitude light. Bangor's population has decreased drastically, but it once had a burgeoning economy early in the last century. The architecture is absolutely magnificent, but decades of decay have allowed many of these buildings to either sit vacant or be turned into apartment/boarding houses.
