Sculpture on black

This was a bit of an experiment. My friend (and gifted artist) David Opheim, created this metal sculpture for my husband out of my husband's machine-shop floor castoffs. It really is a fantastic piece. I put it against black to test my painting muscles. I wanted to play with doing a painting that showed colour in a dark, "loosely" monochromatic piece.
6"x 6" / oil on panel / $75

By golly," you did it, I think you did it! " As Pickering said to Higgins. You will recall that Higgins had his work cut out for him as well.

So consider this painting as your Lisa. Nicely done.

I think you flexed your muscles - fantastic piece. I can't wait to see this one in person.
