Sleeping Giant

"Industrial Plant Nocturne"   SOLD
oil on panel, 2010
"3.5 x 5" (8.89cm x 12.7cm)

Gilded a bronze tone by the orange sodium lights from the harbor, light speckled, a cool night.
Although most industry goes 24 hrs a day, this looked to me like a sleeping giant when I saw it.
That impression was all that I needed for this painting. A simple grid composition, horizontal format for rest, very little color. Dark and still.94
