The bronze sky in this Oakley painting is absolutely meditative and deep with many layers of paint and a subtle finish that allows viewer to "see" into it. The contrasty, highly textured "clouds" of blue not only contrast by color, but by texture as well. The bottom is a neutral hue of gray with oil stick details which contrasts well with the vibrant and textured red line and the white dash. The bottom is "flattened" more with a matte cold wax. This painting was inspired by color itself. It is ready to hang and looks alive on the wall!

Signature: signed on bottom
