Description The Downtown Corner: a wall art print where I used a gothic oil technique creating this scene of an older building. This technique uses strong brush strokes and warm earthen tones creating an old world look. This particular wall art print depicts a architecturally rich older building on a street corner in downtown Seattle.The setting is downtown Seattle with the point of view of this print from an elevation looking down on a very busy urban corner. The pedestrians and the traffic create an element of activity on this captured corner. The architecture of the building creates interest in the setting. The building is brick and stone and was designed with a curve on the corner that pulls your eye right down to the street level.Follow my work: TheWallGallery: https://thewallgallery.comBlog: http://thewallgalleryblog.wordpress.com/Twitter:https://twitter.com/KirtWallGalleryFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/TheWallGallery.KirtTisdaleCopyright 2013 Kirt D.

Kirt Tisdale, Sherman Oaks Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
