Return to: Steel Workers, Pittsburgh 1970s

Acrylic painting Second Shift Steelworker, Young's Bar, Southside Pittsburgh, 1977 by Bernard Scanlan

Second Shift Steelworker, Young's Bar, Southside Pittsburgh, 1977

20X16 acrylic, heavily textured with gel and pumice. When I lived in the southside of Pittsburgh in the late 70s and early 80s, I met many men and women connected to the steel mills. This guy always came into Young's Bar after the second shift, dust and grime all over him. He'd immediately order a shot of Kessler's whisky and an Iron City beer. This painting has a nice old frame as well. 2015
