the image shows a charming historic firehouse and a line of elegant row houses in a Jersey City neighborhood.

I was inspired by my Strolls through the Hood in Jersey City for this mixed media painting, and specifically a charming historic firehouse and line of elegant row houses in my neighborhood. I love seeing the firemen of Ladder 9 taking the trucks out once in a while and cleaning them – there is something really fascinating for me about American Firetrucks :)

The background is collaged - using some player  piano paper.

I used some long treasured vintage player piano paper- I always waited for the perfect piece to use it for and when I was thinking of this street scene I knew I had to use it as part of the collage elements.

the painting is available in my store

Dressed to the 9s measures 10×10″ and is available in the store. It would love to find a new home.   found a wonderful home in Wisconsin!
