So many.

 

Rackstraw Downes was in residency in "untenanted spaces" at the World trade Center slightly before the 9/11 attacks. So gorgeous and now so poignant.

Donna Sink, you should definitely check out the rest of her work, if you haven't/didn't, It's all pretty fantastic! Her profession is actually architecture.

I'll go off the board. Its a bit of a funny story.

My first year of university I was sorted randomly into a drawing studio. I wound up getting a relatively new adjunct/part-time teacher, who (in my opinion) ended up being the best instructor of that cohort studio. To this day I still think he has had a major influence on my work (this was when I was still deciding between majoring in fine art or architecture). He had just completed his MFA thesis focusing on abstraction in the rigidity of perspective laws in architectural representation. Loved it. Ended up giving me a lot of guidance in developing a portfolio to transfer to an architecture faculty. I should really get in touch to thank him again...

OMG this thread just fills me with happy feelings. So much better than another thread asking us to identify the style of a house!

I would have to bring to Mention Georgia Okeeffe:  She has a painting New Britain Museum of Art,  View of the East River.  I was looking at it a couple of weeks ago.  Can't figure out how to post it but  let your fingers do the walking.   

I also saw an photo by Ansel Adams of a building on Cape Cod, which blew me away.

My younger brother also has a small painting he did years ago, that I always  have to go back and revisit.  I usually make him drag it out when I go visit him.  There is something about it .....just a perfect village of forms.

This thread brings back memories of my undergrad and graduate days when I used painting as a form of design process. Strange that I found the time then when I had none to spare. I should really get back on those.
