brewery blocks

Brewery blocks c.1864- 2012  acrylic on canvas 11x 14"

This is a view of the Blitz-Weinhard Brewery which is in the Pearl District.  This Brewery operated from1864 -1999 and was renovated during the reconstruction and birth of the Pearl District.  This simple brick building used to have a major presence on Burnside because of its size.  Now surrounded by taller geometric glass, steel, and concrete towers, the entire character of the building has shifted for me.  I have fallen in love with the warm red bricks, the eccentric petite smoke stack, and the clumsy double-hung windows.
