. . . painted construction zones




I had started this painting earlier this week, but was stuck and didn't know how to go forward. As I was driving home yesterday, I passed a place where construction was just beginning on some rather large project just north of the highway. The heavy equipment, trucks and all the linear elements just strucks me as inspiration, and I came home and finished this one. The picture isn't very good. . . I was in a hurry to post this because I have to call my mom in about one minute.

This is wonderful! I love the grunge feel along with the saturated colors.

Gail and Martha: Thanks so much for your comments. Once again, the colors in this piece just make me happy when I look at them. I am really a primary color kindergartener, aren't I?
