Interesting use of color The yellow seems to be surrounding the houses with warmth Love the crisscross of telephone/electrical wires that keep everyone connected.

The yellow was put late to patch up for initial error on colors.
I got it wrong at first and decided to put the forefront dark and to lighten up a street a bit further back.
As for the wires, it may symbolize connection, thats a possible lecture, no matter what I had in mind ;)

Thanks for the favs! :-)

Loving the messy, stark contrasts. Makes it appear much darker than it really is. I especially love how the power poles resemble burnt wood, and seem 'burnt out'.

The brush strokes are excelent as well. Pallet knife?

Thanks!
I did not think of them as being burned, but it does make sense. A very possible lecture!

Palette knife, indeed.

Gotta love (or hate) the art critics when they look too deep into the pieces, haha.

haha! So true! :D


Something which, by the way, I have no problems with! Art is a discussion brought on the public sphere, which does not have to be the artist's monologue. If the artist does not understand his own genius, it merely confirms Hegel's theory. (note : I am not talking for myself here)
