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.

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.

Artist's Description

The melter uses an air hose to inject pure oxygen into the arc furnace, causing a bright burst of flame as the carbon and other impurities burn off. To the side are shovels already loaded with additives ready to be added to the molten metal if needed. The heat takes about an hour before it is ready to be tapped. I watched this process several times, making sketches and taking reference photos, then did the painting in my studio. I love those warm (no, hot!) colors, and the little touch of cool with the melters greens (fire retardant clothing.)

About Martha Ressler

Martha Ressler

I have a strong sense that “this is my time on earth. It had a beginning and it will have an ending. I share this time on earth with an abundance of other people.” Along with that is an intense sense of place. Most of my work is about these two concepts. The works say, “Here is this place, where I saw, breathed and absorbed the atmosphere. Here are some artifacts from other people who share my time on earth.” I work with fabrics. Their colors and textures have filled my life, since I learned to sew at age 13. In high school I made all of my clothing including my prom dress and Easter coat. Now I use those sewing skills and love of fabric to make Studio Art Quilts: stitched collages of fabric, found objects and papers. I use both hand...
