"Suburban Wasteland"

29" x 21"

Frankly I'm a bit stumped about my feelings for this painting. I was initially thrilled to find it hanging on the wall of a local resale shop, and I was so taken by the piece that I even exceeded my usual purchase price limit. The wide open spaces give this work a powerful feeling of anomie, and the "city in a bubble" on the horizon is a wonderful addition to the main composition of the central house and its monochromatic reflection. However, this painting has not stood the test of time if one is to gauge the value of a work by the length of time spent hanging on my walls. During my last move it did not make the cut, and the painting currently resides in storage.
