Seat backs

My most recent series, Seat Backs, refer to the seats in the South Shore train which I use for my commute to Chicago. I have a real love/hate relationship with the train. It saves me wear and tear but it is uncomfortable and claustrophobic.

These paintings are about mood first, structure second, light third and color fourth. The regularity of the seats actually calms me but the lighting. the closeness, and the colors are annoying.

All the pieces are 29.5" x 39"  done in oil stick.
