Quonset in Oakley

"Quonset," acrylic on canvas 8" x 10", July 2012.

This boarded-up old shed complex is not far from my home in Oakley, California, where there are still pockets of agriculture hopscotching with suburban neighborhoods.

I was attracted to the strong forms of the quonset hut nestled against the gabled barn, and the beautiful shadow pattern. With so many cool colors and complex details in the building, I decided to go with a simple red-orange matrix for balance.
