Powerhouse Canvas

The last weekend I buried myself into the studio to work on this canvas – and it made me pretty happy – I think you might see I was inspired by all the wonderful colors I had seen during my travels.



The building is an old powerhouse here in Jersey City, which is boarded up and there is work going on there- so we will see . I do love this building – I find it fascinating and since I am a big fan of the Tate Modern in London, which is housed in an old power station – I can see an art gallery in here, art studios and some open public space…but probably it will be shops and lofts or a mall – who knows.



I played with all kinds of acrylic media and techniques-I was in my happy happy place :)



Here are some photos I took during the process


Here are the supplies I used:


Have a powerful day :)

    You gave the old powerhouse building a life of its own. Amazing color and your artistic style feels like that building is old.
    Can’t wait to see what you will do with the building when it is finished and in “working” condition.
    Your work is powerful.

    Yes, I can DEFINITELY see the inspiration from your far east trip in this beautiful canvas, Nat!! And I have never wanted to take a trip to Jersey City before you moved there, but you have given me the urge to do a walk-about and see it like you do!!!
