Thank you, René!

It's neat how you're showing the great contrast in size between the elevator and the train horizontally, and the elevator and the power line vertically.

Gorgeous, exceptional, fantastic, do I need to say more?

You've got it Leslie!

I really love all of your work. These industrial landscapes are really great though. Makes me want to go out and pant a silo or an overpass!

Leslie Sealey said...

Thanks B.G., June, and Craig! Wow! I think this one is destined to be a larger studio paintng.

I really like this one. There's a Hopper-esque quality about it.

Tim Schutz said...

Great vertical push in this painting. I like your subject choices.

Thanks for mentioning Hopper; he is hands-down my #1 influence. : )

Leslie Sealey said...

Thank you, Tim! I think the vertical scale will be even more apparent in the big version-this will be 4x5' as a studio painting.
*I like the landscape work on your blog, too!

Something really Wow about this one. I think it's the combination of pattern and realism balancing, yet teetering of the brink of chaos, all overlapping, somehow organized into a rhythm.

Hey, thanks Bill! I felt like everything came together in this one. It was kind of scary to risk ruining it with the telephone pole slashing across the front, but I felt like it "balanced" the tilt of the building and train. Yeah, organized chaos=good. : )
