Fine tuned

I was looking at this one for a while. The lack of shadows makes it difficult to give depth.
The back of the electrical panel box can been seen in the images that I was using for reference.
The wires are darker in reality. Reality was not cutting it for me.

This weekend I wne t back and darkened (almost black) the panel box and lightend the switch panel. This does give more depth to the painting. This is an example where I needed to take some artistic license.
While this is still a different sort of subject, and perhaps a misfit, I think it portrays a kind of dark quality, which contrasts with some of the other paintings in the series and can add some balance. We will see how it plays in front of a crowd.


  1. this has turned from my least favorite to my favorite because it goes directly to the theme in this series which for me is framing ugly destruction and chaos so one can slow down and take a breath and find beauty in everything, no matter the circumstances. It's like you are shaking an hysterical person and saying "hey it's ok just look and see what I see". Nicely done.

  2. Thank you very much for the nice words.
    You and I should get together...
