2nd street, Berkeley,
Two paintings of the concrete plant at 2nd and Virginia/Cedar.
The first was from Thursday morning when the marine layer was thick and the whole atmosphere a little eerie and quiet. Quite a bit of touching up in the studio afterwards. The second from a hot Saturday afternoon. In the second painting I found a place out of the wind and with a different view of the concrete plant. After struggling with the composition, I decided to forget about the ubiquitous chain link fence and slap the color on with joy and abandon. Really enjoyed painting on this Saturday and the peace and quiet in this part of Berkeley.
