CHRISTMAS COUNT DOWN

In the days remaining until Christmas I will replace the daily Industrial landscape with a daily "Christmas Card".

THE DAILY INDUSTRIAL LANDSCAPE #10 ELMER NJ

Elmer New Jersey is one of the many small farming communities scattered through the state's "deep south".  This village, which I always found difficult to take seriously because of its name, is 15 miles from my home town, and for years I drove through the town on my way to Wilmington, Philadelphia, or anywhere west of our farm.

It took 40 years for me to discover, to my utter amazement and delight, Elmer's incredible architectural gem, a worn out and fading grain elevator located only blocks from its small main street, and towering over everything else in the vicinity.  It did not take long before it showed up on my drawing table, not just once, but three times.

the first time - pastel and ink

second time - construction

third time - pastel

THE DAILY INDUSTRIAL LANDSCAPE #9


Two glorious industrial scenes pulled from my imagination, both are pastel enhanced clay mono types.  Each measures approximately 15 x 30".

THE DAILY INDUSTRIAL LANDSCAPE #8

Here are two of my most extravagant paintings in the industrial landscape series.  Like most of the others, they are clay mono types enhanced with soft pastel.
