Paint Party WEEKEND

Well, I would love to tell you all that I have been painting to my heart's content, but I haven't as I am staying with a friend who likes playing cards.
But as it was Paint Party FRI Saturday, I thought I could at least show a pic of a painting I made 20 years ago. I was in a very bad mood when I painted it, and was listening to a German Group called *Die Toten Hosen* - the Dead Trousers, who did - and do - lovely, aggressive punky hard rock. And for some reason I needed it that evening. I had a basement flat, where nobody could here me, so I rocked my corner of the world and this picture came out of it:

I called the painting *Industrial Sunset*, and it seems quite appropriate today in view of what has happened in Japan.
It has been painted using oil on Canvas, and is def. not a masterpiece, but it is a memory of a bad mood and some great musik, even if I don't anymore know WHY I was so bad tempered!
I am entering this into paint party Friday.

Thanks for looking, and have a great day you all, take care!
