Recently, I have been enjoying painting buildings and downtown skylines of big cities from an aesthetic perspective...probably because I am a retired architect who worked mainly on design and construction drawings---all black and white! For this painting, I chose Ft. Worth---the neighbor to the west of my childhood city, Dallas. I had heard a lot about Ft. Worth---"Cowtown"---"Where the West Begins"---"Gateway to the West"---with stockyards full of cattle and cowboys---once a part of the Chisholm Trail. Ft. Worth was a city very different from "fancy" Dallas---or so I thought as a child. But, of course, trips over to Ft. Worth changed my thinking. Now, Ft. Worth is considered the "City of Cattle, Cash, and Culture." In 1970, the old stockyards became the Stockyards Museum, putting on two "cattle drives" daily. Then the famed National Cowgirl Museum developed. Closer to downtown, an area for fine art museums blossomed: The Kimbell Art Museum, The Modern Art Museum of Ft. Worth, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Ft. Worth Museum of Science and History--and many more. I wanted to give a nod to my childhood neighbor and paint its vibrant energy. I really pushed the colors, especially the greens and golds, to achieve my purpose.

Facts of painting:
-One-of-a-kind painting
-acrylic metallic and non-metallic paints, acrylic molding paste for texture
-stretch canvas with painted 1.5" edges
-hanger wire installed, no frame required
-a Texas gift
-any Texan would love this Ft. Worth painting
-anyone would love this Ft. Worth painting!!!
-a must have Cityscape of a Modern City
