220 W. State Street

Yesterday I got to paint my favorite
building in Rockford. 
220 W. State Street

It was pretty chilly out there so we only stayed for about 1 and a half hours. 
I will finish this painting at home when things slow down a bit.


NW Corner, State & Madison
Rockford, IL

This building is the landmark YMCA built in 1889, now called the East Side Center. Built by subscription, the building was Rockford's first YMCA but was sold in 1906 and was the East Side Inn until it closed in 1968. The Richardsonian Romanesque style building was renovated and now serves as an office building. .

 I will let this beautiful building talk for itself.
