The Oceanaire

Here's a painting I finished tonight. It shows a building in Denver called The Oceanaire. I really liked the looks of the building along with the ability to bring prospective into play with this one.

Thanks for looking.

I wouldn't want a painting of this, no "feeling" in this for me but the work is great.

Really enjoyable geometrics. It would be great material for an abstract piece.

I had to click on it to enlarge the photo to be sure it WASN'T a photo - it looked THAT realistic! Wow!

Hi Technobabe. Yeah, the geometrics, starkness, and pseudo-abstract quality of this is not for everyone. Appreciate your input.

Bill Guffey said...

Thanks Mick. I suppose the more simple I paint, the more toward abstraction I move. Although this one appears lifelike in rendering, there definite abstract things going on. And that's not a bad thing. ;)
