"It was a dark brownish red brick loft building which stood completely alone for quite a few years - thus I called it "Lonesome Loft". I never did do the painting. It was rather gloomy, and frankly I just didn't think I would be able to sell it very easily. Demolition type scenes don't sell well..."

Lloyd Street Synagogue - This is the 3rd oldest synagogue in the United States. With the Russian Synagogue, in the next block South, it is the center of a Jewish Historical Complex today.   Top

     
     
     
     
     
     

Lonesome Loft - It stood alone at the corner of Guilford and Pleasant Street and behind it is a part of the Orleans Street Viaduct. It was a dark brownish red brick loft building which stood completely alone for quite a few years - thus I called it "Lonesome Loft". I never did do the painting. It was rather gloomy, and frankly I just didn't think I would be able to sell it very easily. Demolition type scenes don't sell well. I had ideas for a rather dramatic painting too which I knew would be just too gloomy to sell. Look at this attachment, then look at your Hopper print, "Skyline Near Washington Square."    Top

     
     
     
     

Bond & Fleet St - "Voit Glass Works" (circa late 1990's). They repaired or made stained glass items. The transom's over the windows and front doors are often stolen or damaged, and I believe they repaired them. This building (at the corner of Bond and Fleet Street) probably dates from circa 1800. I was told it was once an early Jewish Synagogue. It has been fully restored, and it is a rather beautiful example of early Baltimore historical architecture. I've made several oil paintings of this subject.    Top
