The commercial slip is the restored portion of the Erie Canal in Buffalo NY. It was filled in and built over in the 1950’s when the Skyway was built. Last Fall I spent an afternoon there walking around and taking pictures.

I enjoyed painting the water, it’s dark but it also has bits of unexpected colors that are being reflected by the building and the sky. The rope is a nice touch too because it’s a line that directs your eye to the focal point of the painting.
