16x24 Oil on Wood
We biked out to Pomona recently, I used to go to the antique shops there in the days before E- bay, now it's the latest excursion for urban painting subjects. Pedaling along near the main Rail line we found this big foundry. A mighty big furnace they have at the Pomona Foundry. I loved the bunker look of it so I had to paint it. This painting is mostly with rags including the furnace which I used thinker paint "Raged on" for the first time. In the past I kept rag work as thin under painting... Sky and gound are mostly brushwork , but only a few brushstrokes and some knife for the rest. This started pretty abstract, yet the rag texture gave it a realism that sometimes happens with certain texture effects.
