Thank you for your comments, everyone. The commissioned series I did for McConway and Torley meant a lot to me. I insisted on depicting each worker as an individual, not a generic entity. The supervisors pointed out the very best grinder, and I worked with him to get this picture of him in action. He was trying not to hit me with the sparks. I really didn't care, as I used to work in factories myself and was familiar with the sting.

Great job! Love your work. You capture the essence of a very exciting industry with your artistry. :) v

Your fingers are like a camera's lens.Unbelievable realism !

You're the real deal, girl! ;) Like it a lot!

I swear I can hear the grinder and see the sparks flying! You did an amazing job capturing the energy and action.
