The Trinity River area is full of community activities during a sunny day, but on a gloomy one it looks almost abandoned. After taking a walk on a rainy afternoon, I took some shots of the river and foliage, then went back to my dorm room to review the shots. I added an abandoned-looking house to create this eerie feeling, then made the composition and edges of the work into an inkblot shape to unify the essence of water with the whole image. Even a lively and popular area can become desolate during a gloomy afternoon.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
