Corset

Below are a few shots of the development of Tower, Sunrise. 2015. Oil on panel. 30 x 48 inches.

I have privately referred to it as "Corset" because the colors of the sunrise remind me of flesh, bruised and pinched.

 Pretty much done. Here you can see the heavier "drips" along some of the lines. Also see a peek of  Hwy 20, Westward Before 5 , behind on the left? That piece used to be SO yellow. And I feel a little bad about taming that boldness.
