"Power Plant Interior #1" SOLD
oil on panel, 2010
5" x 7" (12.7cm x 17.78cm )
This painting recently sold at the Small Works Show at the Randy Higbee Gallery.
One of the most fascinating buildings... several stories high... the interior nearly wide open... a matrix of pipes, valves, steel... deep and cavernous.
The light and colors seen here are faithful to the actual site... the walls and pipes painted in these ochres and creams, the floors a mixture of reds and greens, worn and distressed... deep earthy orange reflected light, then the translucent glass filters the outside light... a cool pale yellow.84
