New Painting - Port of Oakland

Port of Oakland. 40" x 48"

Port of Oakland (detail)
I've just finished this painting which was inspired by a visit to the Port of Oakland to watch a friend take part in the weekly summer evening bicycle training. (I understand that cyclists refer to this as the POO ride!) The painting is built from four horizontal wooden panels which were all prepared seperately. Once they were fixed together the painting was developed as one. The lower panel is pasted with yard tickets which I collected while walking around the bicycle route. The colored squares are collaged paper to suggest the freight containers. The upper panel shows the cranes drawn onto vintage wallpaper.
I had fun doing this one!
