Signs of the Times XXI and XXII

Signs of the Times XXI, 6 x 6"

Signs of the Times XXII, 6 x 6"

Still focusing on Detroit, MI, in these two pieces. I'm about out of map and text for that city and will have to move on to something else.

I found a cool map of Kansas City on Ebay or Etsy last week. I went to buy it and the seller was only accepting checks or money orders. I ended up not buying it. How lazy is that? Perhaps now that the weather is warming up and I'm coming out of my winter stupor, I will feel invigorated enough to get out the checkbook.

I'm back to my blues and browns in these and the next couple of pieces. I have also made two for a commission for a friend who used to live in NYC. I found the best map a few months ago. The blues in these pieces are inspired by that old map.

These two pieces are now available on Etsy.
