Turning a gothic horror into art

I  have a gothic horror of a warehouse looming over my backyard that is slowly (very slowly) being fixed up.  It’s a beautifully designed building that only needs a lick of paint to transform it into something quite lovely.  While three sides of the building have been painted, the side facing me is still in it’s pristine dingy state.

About a year ago, my brother in law artist Mark O’Donovan came for a visit and took a few photographs.  And here’s the result.  Called River Without End, it’s 1200×2400 triptych.

Makes me look at the monstrosity in a completely different way.  Maybe it doesn’t need that paint after all.
