9 X 12 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
Available through Copperwood Artware Gallery
A few weeks ago my husband, son and I went out to visit the oil derricks at sunset so that I could snap a few reference photos for paintings. It’s a remote location and being a woman and pregnant I didn’t want to go there alone. My husband thought our son would be bored walking around these giant machines but for a young boy it was paradise. There were rocks to throw, miles of dirt, weird objects waiting to be dug up and tons of space to run. He also loved the giant derricks pumping away and asked thousands of questions about them. It was an odd family outing but one that all of us really enjoyed.
This painting is one of three I just recently finished in my studio. I’ll post the other two soon.
