. . . completed second edition




of this painting yesterday. I had started it last week, and by yesterday I felt good enough to finish it. It is another stab at a painting I had done earlier, but this is a smaller version. The first painting had technical issues involving paint flaking off the edges of the substrate. I experimented further and I think I have solved that particular problem. The inspiration for this is one of my photos of industrial-area building walls.

I just discovered your blog from Artistsjournal's site and am enjoying your postings. This work, in particular, is exquisite. The layering of color and strong sense of atmosphere make an emotional narrative.

Looking forward to more.
