Space Needle

"I had shied away from painting such an iconic piece of architecture as the Space Needle. As a favor, I painted it for a friend. After painting it, I appreciated the contrast of architecture in the city. Once ultra-modern (space age) architecture, The Space Needle ‘circa 1960” looked dated compared to the new wave of buildings in the city.

Hopefully, I paid homage to the grand dame that never really came of age. Standing proud as the city around her kept growing-up. The Latin term 'axis mundi' was something I kept in mind during the process. Expressing a point of connection between sky and earth."
