 Coal Mine 16 x 20

Zinc Mine 16 x 20 

 

For some reason, lately I have been attracted to photos of mines.  Maybe it has to do with my slight claustrophobia...maybe a certain level of respect for these workers and what they do...maybe I'm just in awe of our Earth.  Either way, the following paintings are the result.  The photos I used for inspiration were just newspaper clippings!  I enjoy the challenge of trying to imagine the light and atmosphere of the location, and push the color in the painting.  I was pleased overall with the results.  Hope you like.  Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day.
