Boom Town on the Lake

The booming construction in our city is incredible. At one time, I counted 14 cranes near downtown Bellevue. I started this one way back. But, somehow I have not been able to come up with a good composition. I kept playing with it. I use my leftover oil paint on my palette to play with color and to build up the texture using palette knife. I also put enamel paint on it. It tends to drip which can be used judicially.

This is the final product. Construction and destruction are two sides of the same coin.
