The canvas 4

Finally finished the tester piece, to my satisfaction. Happy that I'm beginning to know what I want from this work. To show the over whelming power struggle between the need to provide adequate housing for the masses over the needs of the masses to be able to afford and control their own housing and the cost of adequate housing opposed to the poverty of the many living in the slums. Kind of, in a way, otherwise its just a commentary on extreme urban growth without real provision for the low incomed, add your own words and opinions.

Anyway, pics show the finished tester and the started final piece, although I may play with another tester before I do anything else to the big one. I need to get it right. There's a lot riding on this work. Next piece I do I'm concentrating on the human form and doing NO MORE LANDSCAPE!
