This is a rough image for the street facing wall. I'd like the text to wrap the corner a bit to lead the eye into a color blend as in the sketch. I like the hot light on the far left as an entry for the eye. Aside from that this would be a cool feeling wall with exception of the rose and its reflection in the lens.
The transition from this wall to the end wall would be from blends of cool color to more contrast. I like the idea of the electrical boxes turned to almost silhouettes of locks hanging from draped chain as in some of the other images. Maybe rusty tools hanging in the background as if in an old-world workshop....
The bike path wall would have the transition from the high contrast of the 'end' wall back into the warm details of the draped, worn, chains and the lock in flight. Shadows of chains on the wall behind would give a beautiful depth and bring the flying lock into the fore.
Self And Other
I finished it just a few weeks ago and the original sold in 20 minutes of its first display.This is the painting of the simple exchange between these two characters and I feel this project offers a chance at greater context for them to convey that sense of wonderment and discovery.
