Basketball Hall of Fame

Topics: abstract art

The Painting Guide has a monthly project to challenge artists and get them to do something they might not ordinarily do. The July project is an abstraction of a urban scene.

I live in Springfield, MA, and every day as I go to work I see the very futuristic looking Basketball Hall of Fame set against the much older high rise buildings in downtown Springfield. So this is the scene I chose to paint in an abstracted view. I think it is an interesting composition to see the contrast of the very modern Hall of Fame building and tower with the old church and taller buildings

It's done on a piece of grey mat board, using acrylic paint.

You can see more of my paintings at, where you'll also see some of my photography and jewelry work.

Thank you for reading my blog.
