Congratulations on your Fine Sale!

I second what Carol said, plus it`s powerful when you look at the size of the man, and then the furnace and fire. Good job.

You darkened background draws right to the action of the fire and furnace. Congratulations.

Congratulations on your sale.

What a fabulous painting! I love the subject. Your description is interesting. Your technique is masterful. Congratulations on your sale. f//v

Thank you! I think I ended up painting 5 versions of this one. All are in private collections.

Congratulations on your sale!


Congratulations on your sale, Martha!! Well done!

Congrats on your sale! :)

Great painting!

Wonderful work! Congratulations!

Gorgeous lights ... nicely done and congrats to you on all your sales of this painting! Well deserved!!

Love this... very nice !!! :)

Wow, beautiful oil painting, Martha! Congratulations on your sale!!!

As you might guess, I work in a foundry. I ended up selling 5 different originals of this painting, with slight differences of course. This is a dramatic moment in the melting process. The melter depicted here, Gary, is very experienced. People who know him can recognize him by his "lean."

Hi Martha - Thanks for your comments on my painting, Prairie Sentinel - I like your work very much - this piece especially has a wonderful atmosphere - good work.
