Greek Orthodox Church in the Snow, February 2017

Greek Orthodox Church

Greek Orthodox Church

I painted this in the snow in February (2017). It shows the Greek Orthodox Church near McCarren Park in Greenpoint which is not far from where I live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The dome was recently restored so it no longer is green from the copper oxidization but is now the original copper color. However, hard for me to say which I prefer, the green wasn’t bad, it still harmonized with the yellow color of the building, but the original is quite nice so it’s good that they restored it. I painted it in the late afternoon with the last glow of sunlight catching the side of the building. I may use this as inspiration to do a larger version.
