Great handling of grays!

Half the battle of color is making a very monochromatic gray day appealing. Trying to see warms and cools becomes even more essential.

The wires make the pole look really wild, like it might really freak out any second.

This is a very nice one. The sky feels cool and reflects the winter chill. Despite this, it has a cheerful feeling. perhaps this is because the poles and wires have a certain dymanic, energetic quality to them.

thanks AW-- this is a road up into the hills above me. It's been closed for a year or more becase the road washed out in a big storm. the city can't afford to rebuild the road. and I guess they can't secure federal aid. the few people who live there have been fucked.

That backstory almost makes it feel like the angst of those wires is a reflection on the poor folks from the hill. I like it with or without that intention.

Mitchl-- Well It was painted from a photo before the road fell, but was actually painted after, so maybe it was an unconscious link... I don't think so, but nice analogy anyway.

Hey Steve, Yeah apparently someone was waiting for it. I don't know the details yet. I want to send them a thank you note. You would be welcome to come by my studio if you want to consider another.
