Industrial Smoke is part of my "World Issues" series, now dealing with climate change, the most critical issue facing mankind. The largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in the United States is from burning fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation. Greenhouse gases trap heat and make our earth warmer. Human activity is responsible for almost all the increase in greenhouse gases in the last 150 years.
This abstract rendering of industrial smoke is 30 inches high by 10 inches wide, acrylic on stretched canvas, on heavy duty stretchers, with painted sides (gallery wrapped), so a frame is not needed. The elongated shape fits many spaces in modern apartments and homes. The painting is signed and dated on the back. I send a letter of provenance when a painting sells, which increases the value of the work. All my artwork is copyrighted by Eleanor Gilpatrick; copyright is not transferable through the purchase of artwork.
Hello!! I am a contemporary realist painter of landscapes, people, still lifes, and abstracts that reflect my love of beauty and the way I see the world. Some paintings deal with peace issues; some are about Climate Change; many have edgy compositions. I never sell prints of my artwork. So, see my descriptions to find out about each piece. Please write to me if you have any questions.
