Park Inn Hotel...16x20 acrylic on paper and panel...09 April 2011

Here is a quick photo of my latest painting.  In 2009, I was on a work trip in Mason City, Iowa and I came upon this gem of a building while exploring “main street” of this small town. Park Inn Hotel was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1909.  Currently, this empty building is being rehabilitated back to its original glory.  Check out this website for more info:  http://www.wrightonthepark.org/

I took a few pictures around the building that I intended to some day paint.  (I can now check that off my list.)  The colors of my painting I took from a detail of the inlaid blue-ish and red-ish tile and the tan-ish cream is from the face brick.
