After making some paintings matching to my houses, I thought: Mmmhh....they are matching to my country homes. And my downtown homes? So here are some more paintings from the great Edward Hopper. They are:

Drugstore, 1927, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston


Early Sunday Morning, 1930, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York


Gas, 1940, The Museum of Modern Art, New York


Manhattan Bridge Loop, 1928, Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts


New York Office, 1962, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Alabama


Nighthawks, 1942, The Art Institute of Chicago


Skyline near Washington Square, 1925, Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute Museum of Art, Utica, New York


The Lily Apartments, 1926, Private collection



Base for all 8 recolors is the "Place over there" painting from the University EP.
