At one time telephone poles were supposed to be left out of paintings. I love how they show direction and perspective, also the linear aspects.
14x20 acrylics on board.
Cheers, Derek

Really cool Derek... I like how the phone lines lead you around the painting. Terrific sky holes in that tree also, just masterful!

Wow ... the foliage is so well done, you have sorted out the detail. I like the wires too -- well, I mean I like them in the painting.

Top rate work Derek. I sure like your little urban scenes. Like glimpses down a street.

C'mon, admit it, you want to paint abstracts! :-)

I like this, in spite of the lines or because of them...not sure which...

Hi Keith: When I attended NYU as a grad student, they shunned realism, so I had to do a lot of abstracts. It was kinda fun....but not me. Thanks.
hey Colin: thanks so much.

I like the telephone and power lines in the picture, it gives it a sense of realism.

I think I'm on Annie's wavelength today as the first word that popped to mind was 'masterful.' :D
Kreutz wrote that all realism is essentially abstract and abstract is actually realistic. Little abstract paint shapes have to represent mailboxes and window panes (or stop signs and street lamps.) The inverse also applies in that 'abstract' is more realist since abstract strokes represent nothing but the strokes they are intended to represent and are thus very concrete as they depict what they are intended to depict. (It sounds better the way he states it) :D

I always enjoy your work and am amazed. So abstract has to be part of it.
