Humbled Beauty - Cityscape Street Light Painting – Teale Hatheway


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

Hidden amongst the shrubbery on the slope of the Arroyo, is this OLD light. Its looong arch makes it look as though it will fall out of the bushes at any moment. It was carefully crafted with curls of iron and designed to jut out over the road. 

From the look of the peeling paint and naked light bulb, I suspect this light hasn’t seen much love over the years. But someone continues to change out that bulb and every night, like clockwork, that light casts a warm glow over the surrounding area.

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