Bloom in Isolation - Cityscape Street Light Painting – Teale Hatheway


Community Sourced Street Light Series
Acrylic, metal leaf on paper.
12” x 12”

This street light was sent to me by a friend in Virginia. The photo was taken on a slightly overcast, summer day and the light stood alone, among lush, East Coast greenery.

When rendering this painting, I wanted to capture the isolation of the subject and the soothing greenery of the surrounds. The lantern itself required heat and the pinky peach globe took on the feeling of a beautiful flower bloom.

This is an original acrylic, metal leaf and varnish painting on paper.
