This is 9x12 on mixed media paper.
Looking for still life subjects I thought the shapes on the light fixture were interesting so I gave it a try. It was fun to paint.

C&C welcome.

This is a unique still life subject! i like it.

It's got an ironic twist to it as Lights Out has a connotation of dark but your painting has a nice glow.

You could push your darkest values a little darker, if you wanted to.

Interesting shapes and unusual subject show there is still life material everywhere! I like how your limited palette puts all the emphasis on the design. Nice one, Perry!

Thanks stapeliad, I think I'll darken some areas.

Thanks Karen and Donna.

Here's the new version. I darkened the background and some areas
of the fixture. I think it works better than the other one.
