"Light Bulb Opposites"

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

This is the challenge I have been waiting for. A subject different then my usual paintings and it forced me to be observant - not just go through the motions.

Michael...Interesting study in value. Very nice contrast of the transparent with the opaqueas well as limited palette.

Nice painting. Love all the brush strokes I see. The clear bulb is perfect and the white one is so interesting with all the different shades.

Hey Michael. What I like most about the painting is the composition. There is a tension between the two bulbs. Each depending on the other for balance. Nice job.
