It was a good session tonight as you can see from the pile in the corner of the studio
I worked on the DeKorte Park piece, which if you saw last night's post was the landscape-y one with the water and birds.
I also did a little searching for news about a favorite Meadowlands subject of mine. It seems that the Xanadu/American Dream project has come back to life. After settling a lawsuit with the neighboring NFL teams, developer Triple Five claims that they're about to start/re-start the construction of mega-mall-to-be. The work will supposedly begin with a remodel of the exterior.
This article from NorthJersey.com has all the dirt, including a little video. I'm not sure what the purpose is of the video, except as kind of requiem to a forgotten vision of a commercial bacchanalia.
Well, I wish them the best of luck. In a world where mall traffic is rapidly tapering, an underperforming mall is exactly what New Jersey needs.
