Massey Hall, Toronto

6x6 oil on gessobord
Massey Hall was built in 1894 as a Music Hall, and is still used for music performances. It is a great place, full of character. Jazz lovers who are familiar with the Dizzy Gillespie, Charley Parker Recording, Live at Massey Hall...well, this is where it happened in 1953.
I took this picture on Shuter Street in Toronto.

I love it and always find that there is something special about a painting not showing sky! It is cozy and intimate!

So nice Catherine. Your painting has as much character as it sounds like the jazz hall does. Love the red doors.
