Prospect Lefferts Gardens Brownstones

Piece description from the artist

I love the Brooklyn brownstones in my neighborhood. They are part of a historic district, which ensures they will maintain their character for generations to come. This historic district was created in 1979. Walking along the sidewalks feels like a place to "promenade" where you can admire the handsome beauty of the architectural details on one side and the stately street trees on the other. I try to capture the energy of the air and depth between these two elements and create an invitation for the viewer to "walk into" the painting and consider the scene.

A historic district can fade into the background and be taken for granted, but it is good to remember that it is an active statement of preservation and value, keeping an element of the New York landscape intact that otherwise might have been swept away by the winds of change. This is a lesson that emerged from losing the original Penn Station.
