The view seen in this artwork is from my kitchen window. It’s in Boston’s SoWa neighborhood, which for many years has been home to lots of old brick factory warehouse buildings.
Recently an entire block between here and there was purchased by a developer planning to building 11 story and 19 story residences on it, so there’s a very high probability that in a couple of years this view will no longer exist.
I’d originally named this painting “East Dedham Street,” but recently realized it’s actually Plympton Street. Knowing that the view may not be around much longer, I’ve decided instead to rename this piece “View from East Canton Street.”
My thanks to the SoWa Artists Guild for sharing my painting today.
Have a great day.
