Healy Heights Tower, oil, diptych, 12x12 and 16x12
This painting is of the tall communications tower that over looks the city from Council Crest. On our of my morning walks my neighbor and I walked up to Healy Heights from our street. When we arrived at the top the sun was shining through the trees illuminating the tower. This is the resulting painting from that days walk. My thought in making it a diptych was that it would create the illusion of height; as if it were so tall it would take 2 canvases to show the entire structure. Not sure if it works. Note that the two canvases do line up perfectly (both are 12" wide)unlike depicted here.
